This 19th of July, raise your glass and join in as we celebrate National Daiquiri Day in our hotels and resorts peppered in the Indian Ocean.
A refreshing drink which is believed to have been concocted by the American mining engineer, Jennings Cox in the 1900s, a Daiquiri is best enjoyed on a summer day and is perfect on an island escape!
Previously, the Daiquiri was served in a tall glass full of ice. A teaspoon of sugar was poured over the ice and lime juice was squeezed over the sugar followed by two or three ounces of white rum to complete the mixture.
Over the years though, the classic Daiquiri has seen some delicious variations; depending on the location and produce available.
The concoction of a Daiquiri is also the fruit of someone’s creativity and passion.
