4 Daiquiri Recipes to celebrate with on National Daiquiri Day

July 19th is National Daiquiri Day and we may not have the palm tree beaches around East Texas, that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate, have a drink, and relax by the water!

Named after the Daiquiri mines, the daiquiri’s origin stems from a Jennings Cox, an American engineer, who was living and working in Cuba. After running out of gin during a cocktail party, rum proved to be a suitable replacement, as it is plentiful in Cuba, and Cox has it on a recipe card signed and dated back to 1896.
