National Daiquiri Day – July 19

Did you even know that there was such a thing as National Daiquiri Day? I suppose having a national “anything” day is cause for celebration and just finding an excuse to imbibe… not that I’m complaining! By definition, a daiquiri is a family of mixed beverages that include rum, lime juice, and a sweetener like sugar. So it doesn’t have any scotch, or any whisky, but it’s still well loved all the same. As for the origins of the Daiquiri, it’s named after a beach near Santiago, Cuba where the drink was invented. Cool, huh?

The fine folks at Brugal rum sent along this recipe if you want to celebrate it in style:

Daikiri Brugal

1½ oz. Brugal Añejo Rum
1 oz. Triple Sec
½ oz. Fresh Lime Juice
½ tsp. Sugar
In a shaker with ice, combine ingredients, shake well and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with a lime slice. (or blend it!)

A nice cool beverage to help drop the temps during this hot summer, enjoy!
