There are several legends about the birth of the daiquiri cocktail.

The most likely version has to do with a gentleman called Jennings Cox, the manager of a copper mine in the town of Daiquiri in Eastern Cuba, who couldn’t offer his boss, who was coming to see him, his favourite drink, gin, so he tried to make an acceptable drink from local white rum using lime and sugar. This became the daiquiri.

The birth of the drink has been attributed (perhaps for publicity purposes) to the El Floriditá bar in Havana and Hemingway, who is said to have been a fan of this flavoured white rum cocktail. The drink has been made unchanged since 1896!


  • Graupel
  • 2 parts white rum (we recommend Bacardi or Havana Club)
  • Juice of half a lime
  • One teaspoon of sugar syrup
  • One teaspoon of lemon juice, one teaspoon of liqueur or one teaspoon of liqueur juice:

This cocktail is made with a shaker.
