JACKSON, Miss. (MISSISSIPPI WEEKEND) -
We all love a good frozen daiquiri on a hot summer day... or maybe that’s just me. Either way, National Daiquiri Day is the perfect time to learn the drinks origin story.
The rum based cocktail was first poured in Cuba when miners started mixing drinks at a local bar after work. They added Bacardi and lime, and the rest is history! The drink is said to be named after the Daiquiri mines.
Today people enjoy the adult beverage across the world! Whether you’re pool side, at a bar, or creating your own cocktail at home, this holiday is for you!
