While entertaining guests at his mine in Cuba in 1898, Engineer Jennings Cox found that his Gin supply had run out, left with nothing else except local rum, lime and sugar, he mixed them together and the rest is history. Most now know this drink as a slus-puppie style beverage, however the original, served straight up, is delicious, JFK’s favorite aperitif!
Variations: The “Hemingway” daiquiri is the same as the regular recipe with the addition of grapefruit and maraschino liqueur; alternatively fresh fruits work a treat, particularly banana and strawberry.
