The winning combination of citrus, sugar and alcohol has been cited as far back as the 16th century; a medicinal ‘cocktail’ to ward off scurvy and ill health among seamen. Despite this, the Daquiri has been credited to one man: American Jennings Stockton Cox in 1828. Whilst working near the Cuban mining town of Daiquiri, Cox adapted the recipe of the local drink ‘Canchánchara’; a blend of rum, lime, honey and water. His colleague FD Pagliuchi sealed the deal on the Daiquiri name and a classic was born.
