Review:

Great on a hot day, but the coldness masks much of the flavour evident when this drink is served 'up' or natural.

History:

Emilio Gonzalez is said to have adapted the Natural Daiquiri into this frozen version at the Plaza Hotel in Cuba. However, Constantino Ribalaigua Vert of Havana's El Florida bar (later renamed El Floridita) made the drink famous.
