Are daiquiris a Louisiana thing?
Daiquiri, a cocktail typically made with rum, citrus juice (usually lemon), and sugar, originates from Cuba. “Daiquiri” is also the name of a beach near Santiago, Cuba. The drink was invented by an American mining engineer named Jennings Cox, who was in Cuba during the Spanish-American War in the late 19th century.
It became popular in the United States in the early 20th century and became especially popular after being favored by figures such as Ernest Hemingway and President John F. Kennedy.
That said, daiquiris have a special place in Louisiana, especially in New Orleans, a city with a unique relationship with cocktails and a long history of mixology. In Louisiana, mobile daiquiri shops are also a typical local cultural phenomenon.
So even though daiquiris are not native to Louisiana, the state has embraced them and made them its own uniquely.
