About National Daiquiri Day

When is National Daiquiri Day? This holiday is always celebrated on July 19

It’s the middle of the Dog Days of Summer. The weather is hot and sultry.  It’s time for a cold and refreshing drink. Enjoying a daiquiri on National Daiquiri Day sounds great to me. This July 19 holiday is the perfect solution, to ease the effects of the heat and humidity. 

The original Daiquiri consists of rum, lime juice, and sugar, with plenty of ice added to the glass. The Daiquiri was first created in 1898 by Jennings Stockton Cox, an American mining engineer. The Daiquiri was named after the local mining village of Daiquiri, Cuba, at the Venus Bar. Needless to say, the local miners loved the sweet summer cooler, and its popularity quickly spread. As its popularity grew, so did the number of varieties. The original lime-based recipe remains the most popular, along with strawberry. The number of different Daiquiri flavors is only limited by the number of berries and other fruit.

In the 1940s Ernest Hemming way conceived the frozen Daiquiri at El Floridita in Havana, Cuba, when he had bartender Constantino Ribalaigua run the drink filled with ice through a blender.
