July 19th is National Daiquiri Day, and what better way to celebrate the summer than a cold, decadent concoction of silky rum and tantalizing tropical flavors? Here are a few places to hit to indulge in this decadent day:

 

The Rum House | 7 Days of Daiquiris 

It’s worth braving Times Square to visit The Rum House, which has been around for almost 10 years and a leader in brown spirits. Celebrating with the“7 Days of Daiquiri” menu, which 30% will also be donated to World Central Kitchen, a non-profit devoted to giving back to the motherlands of rum  (Nicaragua, Dominican Republic and other Central American countries).

 

Gotham Bar & Grill | Spring Daiquiri 
Michelin Star Gotham Bar & Grill is a New York City classic, and Head Bartender Jason Hedges never disappoints with his take on innovative ingredients and old classic cocktails.  His daiquiri features lemongrass, ginger and lime.
Slowly Shirley | FAF Daiquiri
