Made with a basic blend of white rum, lime juice, and sugar, daiquiris are some of the most versatile drinks around. Their roots reach back to the iron mines near the town of Daiquiri, Cuba, in the late 1800s, where American engineer Jennings Cox created the treat for his crew each day after work. The drink became especially popular over the next several decades, probably because you can add just about any type of fruit to the mix.
