Why We Like It

Rum took on new popularity in the United States during World War II, when other spirits were affected by rationing. The Daiquiri is the king of rum cocktails. It’s dead simple, and it’s a great way to enjoy a hot summer day or a humid evening. Many people strongly associate the Daiquiri with those plastic machines that endlessly churn the frozen version of the cocktail for college kids to swill out of plastic cups. The name daiquiri has suffered many indignities over the years, but every gentleman should have the original in his cocktail repertoire. Especially because they’re as easy as 1-2-3 to make!
