Fox Hill Daiquiri

daiquiri-drink-recipeAn historical twist on an old daiquiri recipe!

Ask anyone who has ever visited an island country what the most popular drink at the bar, and the answer will most likely be the Daiquiri!  Some answers will include the kind of daiquiri like strawberry, mango etc.  and the list goes on.  That is because this tropical drink is one of the most versatile on any drinks menu.

You can get a Daiquiri almost anywhere in the world and they are usually made the same way and in many different varieties.

The choice of fruit is often the driving  factor in  preference. This version, Fox Hill Daiquiri, will give your taste buds a fresh, light  tropical wow, as much from the ingredients as from its historical name.  It contains a surprising ingredient that most recipes do not include, which gives it a lighter, creamier taste.

The name, Fox-Hill, is taken from the “village” that sits on the Eastern end of New Providence island in the Bahamas.  According to Bahamas.com,

“Fox Hill is one of the oldest Bahamian villages in The Bahamas. Persons living in this area are affectionately called Fox Hillians. The name is derived from Samuel Fox, a freed African slave who was granted 23 acres of land in 1801. Fox Hill, more than any other village in The Bahamas, has held on to its rich African heritage and culture. An annual event held in Fox Hill is Fox Hill Day. It is a day celebrated by Fox Hillians to celebrate the 1838 emancipation of their ancestors from slavery by the British. ”   Read more about Fox Hill
