Daiquiri Days!

July is decidedly Daiquiri month with National Daiquiri Day on July 19th and Hemingway's birthday on the 21st. There is much to celebrate!

The classic Daiquiri also happens to be a refreshing libation during this national heat wave. So mix up a pitcher or two of your favorite recipe, either on ice, or frozen and take cover from this sultry summertime!
