According to Days of the Year, today (19th July) is Daiquiri Day. Lovely, lovely daiquiris were invented in the early 1900’s by an engineer called Jennings Stockton Cox. He was looking for something cool to drink through the hot summer months, and decided to mix together lime juice, sugar and local Bacardi rum, which went on to be named Daiquiri after the small mining town he was in near Santiago, Cuba. It seemed to please the local miners and unsurprisingly the tasty drink boosted morale! We thank you Mr Cox for your truly marvellous invention!
