Legend tells us that American mining engineer Jennings Cox invented the Daiquiri for visitors in 1896, naming it in honor of the nearby village of Daiquiri in eastern Cuba. That simple inspiration has become one of America’s most popular drinks, with infinite renditions, as the following variations make obvious. If desired, the rim of the glass can be moistened with lime juice and sugar-frosted.
