Well, leave it to my countrymen (and women) to honor author Ernest Hemingway in a big, BIG way. And by big I mean that they made one gigantic daiquiri, which was his favorite drink when vacationing on the island, in order to earn a spot in the Guiness Book of World Records. With a 71-gallon daiquiri, I certainly hope they made it!
In the meantime, though, I decided I'd like to make my own daiquiri to celebrate their success. It's one of my favorite summer drinks and the only difficultly is choosing from one of these delicious recipes, which includes the Hemingway daiquiri, a sugar-free strawberry daiquiri (if you want to be a bit healthier), a frozen mango and mint daiquiri, a spiked watermelon daiquiri and an avocado daiquiri. Make your choice and enjoy!
