History of the Daiquiri
Stunning Cocktail #2: Non-Alcoholic Daiquiri with the great taste of rum.
1 half lime, squeezed,
1 cl of agave syrup,
5cl of Sober-Rum,
Preferably in a shaker with ice
Take a Martini glass or a glass of champagne. Option: put the glass in the freezer beforehand.
If you have a shaker :
Pour half a squeezed lime, 1 cl of agave syrup and 5 cl of Sober-Rum 0.0% directly into the glass. Add ice cubes and shake vigorously for at least 10 seconds. Pour directly into the glass. Garnish with a lemon peel or a fresh mint leaf and enjoy!
Option: Strain beforehand with a sieve to keep only the cocktail without the lemon pulp and ice cubes.
If you don't have a shaker:
Carry out exactly the same steps as above, directly into the glass. Mix well with a spoon. You can add either crushed ice or ice cubes.
No Shaker? Here is an alternative!
You can use an empty jam jar or similar as a shaker. The shaker makes it possible to mix all the ingredients in a homogeneous way and create a symbiosis between them. The shaker can also be used to refresh a cocktail very quickly and to filter in the case of the Daiquiri.
Why put your glass in the freezer beforehand?
The Daiquiri is a cocktail to be consumed very cold. Usually, there is no ice in the glass since everything is filtered. The glass in the freezer allows it to act as an ice cube without diluting the cocktail.
Squeezing the lemon rather than pounding?
Squeezing the lemon allows only the good juice of the lemon to be recovered. Squeezing reveals the bitter lemon peel and the essential oil of the lemon. To balance the flavours it is better to squeeze than to squeeze.
Why use agave syrup?
Simply from a healthy point of view! Agave syrup is a natural sweetening agent produced from Agave with the great advantage of having a low glycaemic index (GI) (15 for agave syrup, 54 for honey, 70 for sugar), which prevents insulin peaks and therefore storage/bloating.
History of the Daiquiri
A cocktail born in a mine!
It was in 1898 that the engineer Jennings Cox came to work in an old mine in Cuba that the famous cocktail was born. Located next to the Daiquiri beach in Cuba, the miners were fervent fans of gin, allowing them to relieve their pain but also their morale! Short of stock due to the sinking of the English ship that came to replenish them, Jennings Cox, to motivate the workers, decided to make a cocktail with the only alcohol he had on the spot, namely, rum.
The aim was to create a rum-based cocktail and hide the taste by mixing it with sugar and lemon.
Once he had found the trick, he immediately gave the miners a taste of the cocktail, which they instantly adopted, naming it Daiquiri in reference to the place where they were at the time.
After this success, some famous bars like the Floridita in Havana, where Ernest Hemingway liked to go, made it a signature cocktail that was quickly exported throughout the United States and Europe. The sugar-free version was called "Papa Doble", in reference to Hemingway's nickname in Cuba, who, as a diabetic, simply took lemon and a double shot of rum.
Today, the Daiquiri can be made in an infinite number of ways (strawberry, mango, passion fruit... or even frozen, an entirely iced cocktail).
