The Bahamian Queen and 7 More Daiquiri Cocktail Recipes for National Daiquiri Day

Grab your friends and celebrate with a glass of Paradise Punch Daiquiri and more. -PJ GachThe daiquiri is probably one of the tastiest classic cocktails that still enjoyed today. This sunshiney rum-based cocktail gives you the taste of the tropics with just one sip. Its origins are a bit misty; the cocktail may have been invented by an American Engineer, Jennings Cox living in Cuba in 1898. He watched men adding Bacardi rum to their evening coffee, and began playing around with rum and other ingredients.Rear Admiral Lucius W. Johnson brought the cocktail recipe to the Army and Navy Club in DC. It caught on, and people all over started creating their own. Hemingway, JFK and Jackie Kennedy were big fans of the cocktail. Jackie even showed the White House staff how to make hers.Read Scotch-Based Cocktails for Summer BlissIt fell out of favor in the 70s, but made a big comeback in the 80s.
