Bring It All Daiq


Today (7.19) is National Daiquiri Day! Whether you prefer more upscale versions or you are more partial to the Queen Latifah-approved drive-through variety, the daiquiri is arguably one of the signature drinks of New Orleans. The standard recipe includes rum, sugar, and lime, but these days pretty much any variation boozy and slushy makes the cut. Celebrate this most hallowed of days with NoDef's round-up of the best spots in the Big Easy (er, Big Freezy) for this cool beverage.
