DAIQUIRI DAY

Date: 19.07.2021

The daiquiri is one of the oldest and most beloved cocktails. It was first created in 1898 in the small mining town of Daiquiri near Santiago de Cuba when a mining engineer, Jennings Stockton Cox, used a blend of lime juice, sugar and local rum to create a refreshing drink to cool down during the long hot summer days. Celebrate this iconic rum cocktail on National Daiquiri Day with Copalli Rum.

Inspired by the tropical rainforest where Copalli is made, and concocted with the finest in-season Belizean fruits, these Copalli daiquiri recipes offer some delicious and refreshing twists on a classic, infused with the taste of Belize. Each cocktail uses the organic, single estate, sustainably-produced and premium Copalli White Rum, which comes straight from Copalli’s zero impact distillery powered by regenerative biomass in the Southern Belizean rainforest.
