In 1898 whilst managing the Daquiri copper-ore mines on the Eastern outskirts of Santiago de Cuba, Jennings Stockton Cox created the Daiquiri. Named for the town in which he worked, Cox mixed BACARDI Rum, which he received as part of his monthly salary, with fresh lime juice and sugar - and a legend was born. In the 1920s, in La Floridita Bar in Havana, Barman Constante Ribailagua originated other variations of this classic which were made from tropical fruits.
