The original daiquiri is an extremely simple recipe that requires just three common ingredients. It is also one of the freshest drinks you can make and an essential rum cocktail everyone should know and taste. 

The daiquiri is a classic rum sour drink, and—much like the martini and margarita—it has also developed into a subfamily of drinks. Many variations take on a variety of flavors, and it's often blended with ice as well.

Daiquirí is the name of a beach and an iron mine near Santiago de Cuba, and is a word of Taíno origin. The drink was supposedly invented by an American mining engineer named Jennings Cox, who was in Cuba at the time of the Spanish–American War, in the late 1800s.

Probably the most famous daiquiri lover was Ernest Hemingway. He even has his own variation - the Hemingway daiquiri adds grapefruit and maraschino liqueur to the mix.

What is the difference between a Margarita and a Daiquiri?

There are two main differences between a margarita and a daiquiri. A margarita is typically made with tequila, while a daiquiri is made using rum. And while a daiquiri contains rum, lime juice, and simple syrup, a margarita contains tequila, lime juice, and triple sec (an orange liqueur).
