Welcome to Daiquiri Season
Welcome to Daiquiri Season: Tales of the Cocktail's Annual Month-Long Celebration of the Daiquiri!

Tales of the Cocktail is pleased to announce our second Daiquiri Season, a celebration of this oh-so-refreshing cocktail during the month of September. We'll explore its history, its heritage, and of course, its role in our cocktail culture both past and present. For the next 30 days, we'll be rolling out articles, interviews, and recipes featuring classic Daiquiris, frozen Daiquiris, and Daiquiris with a twist on

"A frozen daiquiri on a scorching afternoon is soothing. It makes living more tolerable.”— Tallulah Bankhead
From celebrating the home of the Daiquiri in Havana's fabled El Floridita bar to showcasing the lesser-known rums of Puerto Rico to the myriad of ways to drink aged rum this fall, we're taking a note from Papa Hemingway and making the Daiquiri our drink of choice this month. We hope you'll raise a glass and join us in honoring it this September.
“This frozen daiquiri, so well beaten as it is, looks like the sea where the wave falls away from the bow of a ship when she is doing thirty knots.” — Ernest Hemingway
