History of the Banana Daiquiri

The original Daiquiri is a cocktail featuring citrus and rum, and just the right amount of sugar to hit that sweet spot. It’s been around for over a century and it was invented by the American engineer Jennings Cox in 1898 in the Cuban city of – you guessed it – Daiquiri. Legend has it that the engineer ran out of gin during a cocktail party, and since rum is highly popular in Cuba, it turned out to be a great substitute for his punch. The other two ingredients were lemons and brown sugar. The Daiquiri was a huge hit and soon travelled to America where its worldwide success began.
