Many consider a Daiquiri the perfect cocktail and the quintessential test of a good bartender. So on July 19th, we honor this classic for National Daiquiri Day. This year, The Rum House in New York City’s Times Square area is celebrating with “7 Days of Daiquiri” and offering daq specials all week.
“We LOVE a great Daiquiri, obviously!” Rum House owner Kenneth McCoy tells thirsty. “But it’s a beautifully simple cocktail that you can mess up quite easily, so we wanted to showcase some of our favorite rums with some fun interpretations in honor of the classic drink.”
Imbibers can also feel good about ordering a second or third because 30% sales from the special daiquiri menu will be donated to World Central Kitchen, a non-profit devoted to giving back to countries such as Nicaragua, Dominican Republic and other Central American countries, which are regions in which rum comes from.

Although we suggest stopping by as often as possible, our pick is their cocktails special on the actual Daiquiri Day, July 19th, the Hemingway made with Banks 5 rum. “The flavors in a Hemingway are perfect with Banks. The lime brings out the citrusy top notes and the maraschino flagrantly bring out the unapologetically earthy notes,” says Stilo Pimentel, Banks Rums North American Brand Ambassador.
