Today is Daiquiri Day!
This heavenly frozen beverage was invented in the village of Daiquiri Cuba as a way to boost morale and productivity for miners during the long, hot Cuban summers sometime in the early 1900’s by a clearly very smart man named Jennings Cox.
Cox’s original recipe only contained lime juice, sugar, rum and ice, but of course today daiquiris are available in lots of wonderful fruit flavors- my personal favorite is strawberry.
AND, now I’m thirsty. It’s 5 o clock somewhere, right?
