Cheers to National Daiquiri Day – July 19, 2022

Raise a glass of rum-based goodness on National Daiquiri Day!

The delicious daiquiri was likely invented by a Cuban miner named Jennings Cox.  In 1898 during the Spanish-American War, Cox was a mine engineering supervisor in a village named Daiquiri.

After a long day in the mines, Cox and his colleagues would gather at the local bar. One day Cox mixed Bacardi, sugar, and lime into a glass of ice. The refreshing concoction was an immediate hit and quickly became a popular drink in Havanna and throughout the world!

Celebrate National Daiquiri Day with friends and your favorite fruity flavor (just wait until after work!)
