The summer countdown is on and what better way to celebrate than with two Cuban cocktails! Pop some ice in the freezer and get ready to rum-ble...

DAIQUIRI In the bartending world, Daiquiri is the name given to a family of cocktails whose main ingredients are rum, citrus and sugar. The Daiquiri was invented by American mining engineer Jennings Cox, who worked in the iron mines of Daiquirí at the Sierra Maestra Mountains on the South-eastern shore of Cuba. Alongside their salaries, workers received tobacco rations and a monthly ration of local rum which workers often mixed with coffee to create a cocktail of sorts. One night when entertaining guests at home, Jennings ran out of gin. He purchased the easiest liquor he could find, which unsurprisingly was rum, and added lemons, sugar and mineral water creating a punch for his guests. They loved the drink and enquired its name - and so the Daiquiri was born. Nowadays, you’ll be hard-pressed to not see a twisted Daiquiri on any cocktail menu, from fruit infusions to crushed ‘slush’ versions. Our Daiquiri keeps in-line with the original threepart recipe served in perfect measures so you can enjoy the cocktail the way it was intended.
