    Daiquiris have been around since the turn of the century, but they got a big boost in popularity in the 1960s when John Fitzgerald Kennedy became President. After the sedate and stodgy Eisenhower era, the Kennedy White House glowed with youth and glamor, and when word got out that the daiquiri was the President's cocktail of choice, the daiquiri became the "in" drink of the era.


    1 1/2 ounces light rum
    Juice of 11/2 limes (approximately 11/2 ounces)
    1 teaspoon sugar
    1 cup cracked ice
    Garnish (optional): thin slice of lime


    Combine ingredients in blender and whir just until smooth. While this recipe can be multiplied to make several drinks at once, don't make more than will be served immediately, as the delight of a frozen daiquiri is its soft, fresh slushiness.
    Variation: To ma cocktail shaker. Add sugar and stir until dissolved. Add other ingredients, shake briefly, and strain into a cocktail glass. A traditional daiquiri needs no garnish, but a thin slice of lime or a twist of lemon may be used.


    1 1/2 ounces light rum
    Juice of 1 lime juice (approximately 1 ounce)
    1 teaspoon sugar
    6 large strawberries (these can be fresh or frozen)
    1/2 cup cracked ice
    Garnish: large strawberry
    Make as Frozen Daiquiri, above.

    1 1/2 ounces light rum
    1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
    1 tablespoon milk or cream
    1/3 banana, broken into chunks
    1/2 cup cracked ice
    Make as Frozen Daiquiri, above.
