This International Bartenders Association “Unforgettable” is the first thing that comes to mind when you think of a classic rum cocktail. It originated in Cuba, named after a beach and iron mine near Santiago de Cuba and brought back to America some time in the early 1900s. It is similar to a Cuban Mojito, which is flavoured with mint instead of lemon.

Rum drinks were originally associated with sailors and the lower classes and remained unpopular until the 1940s. When trade with the Caribbean stabilized after the Second World War, all things to do with Latin America became popular and the Daiquiri was suddenly a star. It is said to have been one of John F. Kennedy’s favourite drinks.

Different flavours were substituted for the original lime, including adding crushed bananas, but the number of Daiquiri varieties really took off with the fad for frozen drinks. Ordering a Daiquiri in a restaurant will now almost invariably produce something that’s been mixed in a blender with ice. In fact, almost anything that’s been concocted in a blender tends to be called a “frozen Daiquiri”.

The most popular variation on the classic lime Daiquiri is the Frozen Strawberry Daiquiri. To make one, cut the measure of lime in half and add fresh strawberries to the mix in your blender. Our favourite is the Daiquiri Mulata, which is made by adding Kahlua.

Here’s the recipe for a traditional lime Daiquiri Cocktail:


  • 60ml White Rum
  • 30ml Lime juice
  • 30ml Sugar syrup
  • Lime wheel to garnish


  1. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice
  2. Add Rum, lime juice and sugar syrup
  3. Shake vigorously
  4. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass
  5. Garnish with a lime wheel


  • Cocktail shaker
  • Ice
  • Cocktail glass
