Rum, lime and sugar are at the base of the Daiquiri, a match made in heaven, and a natural combination in the Caribbean, where sugar cane is transformed into both sugar and rum. Drinks including these three base ingredients are recorded as early as 1740.
Adding strawberries is not quite as old, but the practice is now fully established, and the combination with lime is a perfect match, the zesty citrus edge lifting juicy, subtly sweet strawberries. There are many fruit versions of the Daiquiri, but this is the one you’re most likely to come across in the home of this cocktail, Cuba.
