The daiquiri was created in 1898 by Jennings Cox. During the Spanish-American war, miners in Cuba would meet at the Venus bar after a long day of work. One day Mr. Cox went behind the bar and mixed up some Bacardi, lime juice and sugar. He named his concoction after the town they were in – Daiquiri.
