Cocktail Corner: Daiquiri

January 19, 2012 Leave a comment

It’s a story I’ve told many times, but I suppose it’s worth telling again; the reason why I decided to abstain from drinking rum for the past five years is because of a single instance in which a series of rum and Cokes one night nearly made me keep my promise of swearing off drinking for life. It was only recently that I bit the bullet and added a bottle of dark rum to my mini-bar. I now have a new appreciation for this tropical spirit though. It’s more versatile than I ever realized, certainly more so than tequila. There’s also a number of classic, history-filled drinks that use rum as its base. One of those drinks is the daiquiri, a cocktail that has interesting 100+ year old Caribbean origins.

The original daiquiri is really just a rum gimlet.
