Happy National Daiquiri Day!

How did I not know about this sooner?! July 19th is National Daiquiri Day! So let's celebrate this sweet, run based drink that so many of us in the South love!

A few random facts about daiquiris:
* Named after a beach in Cuba
* Created by American, Jennings Stockton Cox when he was in Cuba
* The favorite drink of Ernest Hemingway and John F. Kennedy.
* Originally served on the rocks

The possibilities with daiquiris are endless- every flavor you could imagine. Perfect for cooling down on a hot summer's day! If you are lucky enough to have a Fat Tuesday around you, swing on over and order one up!

Here is my favorite recipe for a Frozen Strawberry recipe:
6 cups of ice
1/2 cup white sugar
4 oz frozen strawberries
1/8 cup lime juice
1/8 cup lemon juice
3/4 your favorite rum
1/4 cup lemon-lime flavored carbonated beverage

*Combine everything in a blender. Blend until smooth. Yields 8 servings

So now it's time to run to the liquor store, grab and bottle of rum, and start mixing!
