National Daiquiri Day 2016

When: July 19th is celebrated as the National Daiquiri day every year.

What is Daiquiri

Daiquiri is the rum-based cocktails invented by Jennings Cox, an American mining engineer during his tenure in Cuba. According to legend, Cox is said to have created daiquiri at a bar in Santiago when they ran out of gin.

This drink was a combination of white rum, sugar and lime juice. This was way back in early 1900s. Later in 1940, the frozen variety of this drink was created by a bartender named Constantino Ribalaigua in Havana. From then on, many flavored varieties of daiquiri were created.

How to Celebarte

The best way is to celebrate this day with friends near a water body preferably a beach. Fill a cocktail shaker with the lime juice squeezed from half a lime. Then add 2 ounces of white rum and one ounce of sugar syrup. Add ice and shake vigorously; strain into a glass. Decorate with a lime wheel and enjoy your daiquiri in the backdrop of music.

Alternately one can also check out at local bars for drink specials. They will definitely serve many varieties of the original drink on this day. Meet and treat your friends and have a happy daiquiri day.
