How to make a strawberry daiquiri

Not exactly the classic recipe but still an American Classic

Daiquiris have been an American favorite since World War II, and with so many flavors to choose from we can see exactly why.

Classic Strawberry Daiquiri Recipe

Daiquiris. They come in a variety of fruity flavors – the strawberry daiquiri being one of the most popular with American drinkers.

This [typically blended] concoction was the mind’s work of an American engineer by the name of Jennings Cox while he was in Cuba. It’s named after a beach in Santiago, Cuba where the drink was defined by the use of Carta Blanca Rum.

There are 5 traditional variations of the daiquiri, and oddly enough, none of which contain strawberries – even though it is the most common variation found State Side. The Classic Daiquiri is made of 2 Ounces Caña Brava Rum, 1 Ounce Fresh Lime Juice, and 1/2 Ounce Sugar [or Simple Syurp].

For years, mixologists around the world have been adding a fruity spin to the drink. Daiquiris are so popular that July 19th was named National Daiquiri Day. We’ll raise a glass to that.

    I was just searching for this info for some time. After 6 hours of continuous
    Googleing, at last I got it in your site.
    I wonder what is the lack of Google strategy that do not rank this kind
    of informative websites in top of the list. Usually the top websites are full of
    garbage.
