   Did you know the daiquiri was likely invented by miners? An engineer named Jennings Cox supervised a mine in a village named Daiquiri in 1898 during the Spanish-American War. 
   After work, Cox and his colleagues would gather at the local bar. One day Cox mixed Bacardi, sugar, and lime into a glass of ice. 
   Named after the Daiquiri mines, the drink became a popular staple.
   A daiquiri is not just a drink, it can be kind of an achievement. From all the hard work that gets done – everyone can get together to enjoy a delicious daiquiri at the end of the day.
