The daiquiri is said to be discovered over a century ago by a worker in a village called Daiquiri, just outside Santiago, Cuba. It was then popularized in Havana’s La Floridita bar, where Hemingway discovered it. We enjoyed ours at La Foridita, which unfortunately is filled with tourists, but worth the visit. (especially is you get to see Hemingway!)
