Daiquiri Variations To Try:

  • The Pineapple Daiquiri Recipe - While following a similar formula to the OG Daiquiri, this variation adds a splash of something special: pineapple juice. Garnish with a pineapple wedge and prepare to be whisked off to tropical island.
  • Grapefruit Daiquiri Recipe - In this citrus-flavored Daiquiri, grapefruit is the superstar. White rum provides the base and boozy kick, while still letting the grapefruit flavor shine. Garnish with a grapefruit twist and you’re good to go.
  • The Rosemary And Honey Daiquiri Recipe - Seasonal winter ingredients make this riff the perfect cold-weather cocktail. Honey syrup adds nuance and sweetness, complementing the delicate spice of the dark rum and the earthiness of rosemary.
