Daiquiri cocktail

Daiquiri cocktail
A Daiquiri cocktail is a refreshing, zesty drink made from rum, a citrus (lime usually) and sugar.
There is a whole family of variations of the Daiquiri recipe as it has remained a popular cocktail for over 100 years.
It has origins in the 18th century as The British Royal Navy gave rations for a drink called grog, which was similar to the ingredients of a Daiquiri cocktail – as the Vitamin C helped prevent the sailors from contracting scurvy!
It is said that Hemingway drank his daiquiris by the double earning the nickname "Papa Doble" with a record of 16 doubles in one sitting. Don't try that please!
