The Daiquiri is a serious cocktail with serious origins in the US Navy. It was invented in Santiago de Cuba one night when the gin ran out, and became the go-to tipple at the Pentagon.
Every subsequent derivation of it (with a few exceptions like the Hemingway) are really a bit of fun. None more so than this frozen pineapple-flavoured cocktail.
