Enjoy National Daiquiri Day on July 19th with Cask Cartel
July seems to be the month of national cocktail days, but hey… we’re not complaining. National Daiquiri Day is on July 19th, and we couldn’t be more pumped! There is something about this cocktail that brings people together. Maybe this has to do with the fact that researchers have found that daiquiris trigger the production of dopamine in the brain, leading to nothing but good times. So whether you are planning to spend the day laying poolside with a daiquiri in hand, or you are planning a COVID-friendly soirée, celebrate with these recipes and some rum, courtesy of yours truly.

1 1/2 oz Cruzan Aged Light Rum
3/4 oz fresh lime juice
