When you think of the early 20th century in Cuba, it will come as no surprise to you that Ernest Hemingway was really into Daiquiri cocktails. The fabled author was well known for haunting a bar there called El Floridita, where he enjoyed the beverage. He even helped create his own spin on the recipe.
Another famous 20th-century figure who loved his Daiquiris came to us not from the book-writing world but the halls of power. President John F. Kennedy was a huge fan of the Daiquiri cocktail. It was what he drank to celebrate his win against Richard Nixon in the 1960 presidential election! So go ahead and drink like you’re the leader of the free world!
