In Honor of National Daiquiri Day... The Kiwi Daiquiri

With Nationwide heat waves creating a record high 9000 new records this month (a first for as long as they have been recording temperatures) it is only right to afford yourself a few moments to relax and get a few cold drinks.

Today being National Daiquiri Day means that after work, before work or sometime during work if you’re a Boss like that, you should take a dip into the pool and make yourself an ice cold, strong libation. Not too strong though, you don’t want to be the person passed out by the pool from liquor and heat exhaustion.

Bringing us to the Recipe of the Day, The Kiwi Daiquiri, goes with just about any form of food you can imagine. From BBQ to Italian to Fajitas Y Mariscos this drink simply doesn’t let you down, especially after having like 5 or 10 of them.

Try them with some grilled shrimp, langoustines and clams tossed in a Rum & Mango Juice reduction.
You wont be mad that you did.

Enjoy Responsibly.
