Originated 1915-1920; after Daiquirí, a town on the East coast of Cuba.
Daiquiri, near Oriente, and mines near Nipe, on the north coast, are the chief centres of production.
A Daiquiri is actually an extremely simple drink.
Strawberry Daiquiri mix is an ingredient that allows professional and amateur mixologists to make a great-tasting strawberry Daiquiri for less. in fact, according to some companies, the mix costs only about a nickel per serving.
The iron ores mined at Daiquiri near Santiago are mainly rich hematites running above 60% of iron, with very little sulphur or phosphorus admixture.
The first exports from the Daiquiri district were made by an American company in 1884; the Nipe (Cagimaya) mines became prominent in promise in 1906.
