Hello Summer!

Bit of history and facts:
Daiquiri is also the name of a beach and an Iron Mine near Santiago de Cuba 
The drink was supposedly invented by an American mining engineer named Jennings Cox, who was in Cuba at the time of the Spanish-American War. It is also possible that William A. Chanler, a US Congressman who purchased the Santiago iron mines in 1902, introduced the daiquiri to clubs in New York in that year. 
Originally the drink was served in a tall glass packed with cracked ice. A teaspoon of sugar was poured over the ice and the juice of one or two limes was squeezed over the sugar. Two or three ounces of white rum completed the mixture. The glass was then frosted by stirring with a long-handled spoon. Later the daiquiri evolved to be mixed in a shaker with the same ingredients but with shaved ice. After a thorough shaking, it was poured into a chilled coupe glass.
A wide variety of alcoholic mixed drinks made with finely pulverized ice are often called frozen daiquirí. These drinks can also be combined and poured from a blender, eliminating the need for manual pulverization, and producing a texture similar to a smoothie. On larger scales, such drinks are often commercially made in larger machines, and come in a wide variety of flavors made with various alcohol or liquors
