It is one of the six basic drinks listed in David A. Embury’s classic – The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks. The daiquiri became popular in the 1940's because wartime rationing made whiskey, vodka, etc., hard to come by. The drink even became a favorite of author Ernest Hemingway. 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.
A popular variation of the drink is the “Hemingway Daiquiri” or “papa doble” (papa being affectionate name of Hemingway) – two half jiggers of white, juice of two lemons and half a grapefruit, six drops of maraschino liquer, without sugar.
