Surprise! It’s another “national holiday” celebrating something you thought was a normal everyday celebration! This Sunday is National Daiquiri Day and I don’t know about you, but I can actually get behind this one. All hail the daiquiri!
The Hemingway Daiquiri has to be one of my absolute favorites. The addition of fresh grapefruit juice as well as swapping out simple syrup for Maraschino Liqueur just elevates this already perfect summer cocktail. It also adds a little complexity to a fairly simple concoction. You know what makes it even better? Using an award-winning, premium dark golden rum from Venezuela, such as – Diplomatico’s Reserva Exclusiva.
And then adding a dash or two of Habañero Tabasco Sauce to this refreshing tipple…ups the ante even more, to dangerously delicious territory. Tabasco’s hottest sauce deserves a special cooling summer cocktail. Forget Fireball, this is the real spicy deal.
So, celebrate National Daiquiri Day this year in style and heat.You still have a few days to perfect this festive drink.
