While Europe has been cast in rainy weather, North America has been cooking with massive droughts. We have been looking for ways to beat the heat and it just happens to be National Daiquiri Day! We collected our favorite 10 recipes for unique daiquiri ideas to cool us off this summer.

The classic daiquiri is actually very different from what we generally see in restaurants today. It is a relatively new cocktail that was developed by an American in a Cuban bar. The original drink is 9 parts white rum to 4 parts lime juice to 1 part simple syrup. Serve it over cracked ice for a classic flavor. All of these unique cocktails use the same ratio of lime to sugar for the classic daiquiri taste. Add mint to the mix and you have a mojito! It’s easy to make virgin daiquiris by mixing juice or pop with the same ratio of lime and sugar.

Enjoy these refreshing drinks this hot summer!
