Break out the blender for National Daiquiri Day on July 19th. One of the oldest known cocktails, the Daiquiri was invented in a small mining town of the same name near Santiago, Cuba, by Jennings Stockton Cox, an American engineer, in 1898. 

Cox created the tasty chilled drink as a way to cool off in the heat of the summer and to boost the morale of mine workers. The original recipe used a blend of local Bacardi rum, sugar, and lime juice served over cracked ice. 

A decade later, the Daiquiri was introduced to the U.S. Army and Navy Club in Washington, D.C. by Admiral Lucius W. Johnson who first tried the drink in 1909. From there, the drinks popularity grew, eventually making its name as a favorite of prominent figures such as President John F. Kennedy and Ernest Hemingway.

So be sure to raise a glass of this frothy frozen treat on July 19th to celebrate National Daiquiri Day.
