The classic daiquiri typically consists of rum, lime juice, and simple syrup (a mixture of sugar and water). It is served shaken and then strained into a chilled cocktail glass. The cocktail's origins can be traced back to Cuba, where it is said to be created first in the late 1800s. Over time, the recipe has evolved to include different variations and flavors, but the basic components of rum, lime, and sweetener remain the same. The Daiquiri is a refreshing and citrusy drink that has remained popular throughout the years.

Frozen daiquiri

It is worth noting that there is a common misconception that all daiquiris are frozen slushy drinks, often with fruit flavors such as strawberry. While these variations can be delicious, they are technically a separate drink from the classic daiquiri. The original daiquiri as described above is a shaken or stirred cocktail that is served chilled and strained, and does not include any frozen or blended elements. Nonetheless, the popularity of these frozen drinks has led to the creation of many daiquiri variations that incorporate different fruit flavors and textures which a great for a summertime cocktail.
