July 19: National Daiquiri Day

Mmm...daiquiris.  I fully admit, I love cold, fruity alcoholic drinks.  Even more so when they come with cute garnishes like a citrus peel curl, or even that tacky paper unbrella.

I think most people are familiar with strawberry daiquiris (I know I am!) but did you know that the daiquiri started out as a single drink and has evolved into a category of drinks?  A classic daiquiri is pretty easy - rum, lime juice, and a simple sugar syrup.  (Alton Brown's classic daiquiri recipe gives you strict instructions so you end up with the best daiquiri possible.)  Pretty much any flavor of daiquiri is possible.  Looks for some daiquiri inspiration?  Check out this collection of daiquir recipes.
