Malibu daiquiri


Ah, the Daiquiri. Even though it was created over a hundred years ago, this sweet and sour classic is being enjoyed around the world to this day. It’s like they say: great taste never goes out of style 😌 Just one sip will make you understand how it stood the test of time. Here’s our take on the famous drink – the same perfect balance with a coconut twist 🥥



Why is it named after the town of Daiquiri in Cuba?

Short answer: Because it was created around there.

Long answer: It’s the end of the 19th century. An engineer that was working outside of the town of Daiquiri wanted to make a drink, and only had rum, lemons and sugar available. Shaking it with ice, he created a delicious drink that was initially referred to as Rum Sour. “Bit of a long name?” he and his friend thought. So, they changed it to the name of the nearby town – Daiquiri.

How did it become famous?

It is said that the creators of the drink went to a bar and ordered a Daiquiri after it was invented. Although the following is not a direct quote, the bartender replied with something along the lines of “huh?”.

He, of course, didn’t know what drink they were talking about. The drink was what – a couple of days old? So, they explained how it was done, the bartender made a couple of Daiquiris for them and their friends, and they liked it too. One order led to another, and here we are.

We’d like to leave you with a thought: If an engineer from over a hundred years ago can make up a drink that becomes a beloved classic worldwide – so can you.

What are some other popular variations of the classic Daiquiri?
