Daiquiri No. 3 – Bar La Florida’s Classic 1930s Recipe

In the 1930s Cuban cocktails started to become popular in the united states thanks to the writers F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway. This cocktail was invented in the late 1800s by Jennings Cox, an American mining engineer living in Cuba at the time, and is named after the Daiquiri Mines he worked in east of Santiago.

These recipes are from the 1935 Bar La Florida from Havana, Cuba. The Bar took the original recipe and made 3 other variations of it using a different citrus as the main flavor. This is the grapefruit flavored Daiquiri #3. This one would later go on to inspire the Hemingway, which is boozier and less sweet #3.
