Perfect Drink® recipe


The Daiquiri was supposedly invented by Jennings Cox, an American mining engineer who was in Cuba in the late 1800s. The fact that there is a mine and beach of the same name near Santiago, Cuba lends credence to this claim. In 1909 Admiral Lucius Johnson brought the drink from Cuba to the Army & Navy Club in Washington DC. It's popularity exploded in the 1940s when wartime conditions led to a shortage of whisky and other spirits, but rum was still readily available from the Caribbean.
