The Sugar Free Daiquiri is based on the very old cocktail based out of the Caribbean.
It also has a long history, with it’s popularity waxing and waning during different times in history, depending a lot on war conditions and the availability of rum. It at least dates back to 1909 and is referred to in David E. Embury’s book The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks, as one of the six basic drinks. Another interesting fact is that it was a favorite cocktail of Ernest Hemingway and President Kennedy!
This is a wonderful cocktail that is easy to make, and very, very delicious in it’s purity and simplicity.
And in case you were wondering the six are:
- Jack Rose
- Old Fashioned
And we’ve actually made all of the above! We’ll link to those posts once they are completed!
