Take a “Daiquiri Time Out” on July 19th (National Daiquiri Day) to learn about the story behind The Original BACARDÍ® Daiquiri.
While the daiquiri doesn’t always come to mind when thinking of classic cocktails, it has an interesting history and was the favored drink for many during the mid-century. While Hemingway might be the most famously associated with the cocktail, President JFK was another fan – he drank the cocktail on his sailboat, the Honey Fitz. See the infographic below for more fun facts surrounding the daiquiri!
Based on the original recipe developed in 1898, The Original BACARDÍ® Daiquiri is made with 3 simple ingredients: BACARDÍ Superior, Simple Syrup (or Sugar), and Lime Juice. In addition to the classic recipe, the versatility of the daiquiri’s flavor components lends itself to experimentation. Whether you enjoy it shaken, frozen, or in a #DaiquiriTimeOut shot (a beloved bartender tradition), there is a daiquiri for everyone.
