Strawberry Daiquiri Recipe

The strawberry daiquiri is a variant on the original daiquiri which was made mainly with lime juice and rum and was not a frozen beverage. The strawberry daiquiri is now much more common, so much that ordering a “daiquiri” will often get you the strawberry version. It is also more common for the drink to come “frozen”, either by blending ingredients with ice or by using frozen ingredients such as cans of flavored frozen concentrates.

  • 1oz lime juice

Non Sequitur

At the beginning of the 20th century, the engineer Pagliuchi visited an iron mine called Daiquiri at the east of Cuba. He questioned the American engineer Jennings S. Cox about the work of the mine because he wanted to exploit deserted mines in the area of Cobre (near Santiago de Cuba).

At the end of the day of work ended Pagliuchi suggested having a drink. The legend says that in Cox’s storeroom there were only rum, lemons and sugar. They mixed these elements in a shaker with ice.

“What is this cocktail called ?” asked Pagliuchi. “It has no name – so it must be a rum sour”, answered Cox. Pagliuchi retorted that “this name isn’t worthy of such a fine and delicious cocktail. We’ll call it Daiquiri.
