Cuba With Love: The Tangled Tale of the Daiquiri

PRESENTED ON NOV 16, 2017
IN KNOXVILLE @ VOL 25
Casey talks about how one of the great joys of cocktail culture is learning the stories behind the many classic drinks in the canon. The Daiquiri is a drink that many people know in its modern incarnation as a frozen beverage served by the pitcher. But its
history is deep and complicated, entwined with Spanish colonial ambitions, American empire - building, and the complex experience of Cuba in the 20th century. By telling the tale of the Daiquiri, the founders of Libacious cocktail catering illustrate how much history can be contained in a single, delicious drink.
