A Daiquiri is not a Daiquiri, simply because it has lime in it. In fact, where the popular cocktail originates, Cuba, has concocted a few variations that play pretty fast and loose with the recipe. This cocktail uses lemon instead of lime and was first inspired back in 2014 when there was a lime shortage.
