Trivia removed[edit]

I removed much of the content of this page, as it violates WP:NOT (see the section on "Wikipedia is not an indiscriminate collection of information", point 8). However, the content is contained within the wikibooks article which I have linked to. --Xyzzyplugh 03:24, 25 March 2006 (UTC)

The 'Cuban Spelling'[edit]

"Daiquiri, or Daiquiri (which is the Cuban spelling of the word)"

What gives? Both spellings are the same.

Actually, the cuban spelling has a different 'i'. Daiquirí. It's hard to spot I know. 203.166.250.47 12:17, 15 January 2007 (UTC)

"Cuban" is misleading here. It's a Spanish word, and that's the Spanish spelling of it. In other words, it's the original and correct spelling of it. It's not some Cuban dialectalism. — Chameleon 02:31, 30 June 2007 (UTC)
Actually, it seems it's a Spanish rendering of a native American word, which is a very different thing.Sjwells53 (talk) 16:03, 17 December 2012 (UTC)

cultural perceptions[edit]

If the drink was invented by mining engineers, how did it come to have such "girly" perceptions in popular culture? E.g. the strawberry daiquiri. 12.219.84.232 04:20, 17 June 2007 (UTC) My grandmother told me the same story of origin but said her father, Edgar Conway Felton, was also one of the inventors (in Cuba). —Preceding unsigned comment added by 209.157.140.8 (talk) 00:24, 23 September 2007 (UTC) cuban food is awesome and so is tyler.

Because the modern bar daiquiri had little in common with the original drink. As it was first made, it was basically chilled grog without the water: so a drink stronger than a sailor would have on a Royal Navy ship. Once crushed ice and friut juice started to be added, it lost its manliness. --64.81.96.198 (talk) 19:03, 2 September 2009 (UTC)

Bacardi refs[edit]

We could use some better refs. I would not consider Bacardi's web site to be authoritative, but it's hard to tell since these are Flash sites, not normal web sites, and not viewable with an ordinary web browser. Rees11 (talk) 01:15, 28 May 2008 (UTC)

bacardi Photo[edit]

Hi Everybody, I am a little bit upset considering what happens with the representation of rum cocktails. I just visited 2 wikipedia article Mojito and Daiquiri and both have photo that seems advertising for Bacardi. Could we make something? Can I report this problem to a specific admin? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Amagon rosh (talkcontribs) 15:54, 26 June 2008 (UTC)

I believe these are just vandalism. The photos claim to be public domain but there is no photographer's name, and they all come from the Bacardi Corp. I have reverted several, please revert any more that you find. Whoever put the photos on these pages (the editor is anonymous), if you disagree with this decision, please discuss here before reverting. Rees11 (talk) 19:45, 26 June 2008 (UTC)

Source/Citation Info[edit]

For anyone interested in adding the citations, the NYT just ran an article containing some relevant material titled, The Pulse of Summer, Blender Drinks are Back. It's available at http://www.nytimes.com/2008/06/25/dining/25blender.html?_r=1&ref=dining&oref=slogin and has a bit on the history of the daiquiri and the El Floridita. mlhwitz (talk) 14:29, 1 July 2008 (UTC)

Strawberry daquiri[edit]

A famous variation? There should be mention of it. __meco (talk) 08:21, 27 May 2009 (UTC)

I think it's covered under the "Frozen daiquiri" section. Rees11 (talk) 11:49, 27 May 2009 (UTC)

Grog recipe[edit]

I added the grog recipe of 1795, the year citrus became standard. Unfortunately my source doesn't say how much rum or water, and is unclear on the units. I suspect the ounces are Imperial, but don't know if the sugar is fluid ounces. Because of this uncertainty I have not tried to convert these to standard units. Rees11 (talk) 13:17, 26 August 2009 (UTC)

From what I read of the Royal Navy, the measurements for water was in "parts" : so, the standard three water grog was one part rum, three part water. When a sailor was punished for a minor infarction, the captain could put him on "seven water grog"  : seven parts water to one part rum. In both cases, the underlying amount of rum remained the same. --Woland (talk) 19:06, 2 September 2009 (UTC)
I'm sure you mean an infraction. An infarction suggests a heart attack, and I reckon this was not a punishable offence even in the 18th century. Sjwells53 (talk) 16:06, 17 December 2012 (UTC)

Tripple sec or Curaçao? Need some authority to help w/ definitive answer[edit]

Many bar tenders use triple sec or Curaçao (or Grand marinier or other bitter orange flavored liquors in creation of daiquiri, much the same as they are used in a margarita. The drinks are very similar, only differing (in this case) by the liquor (where tequila is used rather than rum). —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.91.99.19 (talk) 16:46, 23 May 2010 (UTC)
