Born in Cuba in the late 1800s, the drink itself invokes a sense of nostalgia, and tropical beachside scenes. It’s not surprising that the evolution of rum is also linked to the sea. Rum and its star cocktail - the daiquiri, have been adored, adulterated, and misunderstood equally. Up until fairly recently, many people in the states have only experienced the overly sweet, blended versions with a heavy dose of sour mix and fruity flavors. Luckily, we know better now! This is a deep dive into the complex history of rum, the stories behind the daiquiri, and the twists inspired by this classic rum sour.
