COCKTAIL: The Daiquiri

Daily Beast writer Katie Workman provides a primer on "
the drink Hemingway made famous" including a brief overview of its history and several recipes to try out. Cheers!

The Original Daiquiri:
The daiquiri, named after a nearby village, was served in a tall glass packed with cracked ice. A bit of sugar was added, and then fresh lime (or lemon—there's contention on this point) juice was squeezed over the sugar, and a few ounces of rum poured in. Then it was simply stirred vigorously. Later, the cocktail shaker became part of the equation.
