As an American engineer living and working in Cuba after the Spanish-American War, Cox is believed to have invented the daiquiri after running out of gin while throwing a cocktail party. Since rum is abundant there, he was able to substitute it in his punch.

A Daiquiri has many variations, but this recipe is a simple summer drink made with rum, lime, and simple syrup.
