It’s the middle of July and that means it’s time for National Daiquiri Day. Recognized on July 18, the celebration of the classic mix of rum, lime and sugar arrives as a refreshing breeze, albeit an artificially created one, in the heat of summer. But just because it’s a made up holiday doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do everything you can to enjoy it. You can shake up your own Daiquiris, blend a fruity frozen version or, of course, hit the bar. If you’re looking for a good deal, try one of these spots around the U.S. Whether you’re looking for a legit cocktail den or a divey beach bar, there’s a Daiquiri deal out there for you.
The Place: Nacional 27, Chicago
The Deal: $7 Daiquiris
The massive pan latin American restaurant is offering up classic takes on the Daiquiri for seven bucks all day long. Nacional 27 gets clubby as the evening goes on, so throw back a couple discount Daiquiris and dance the night away.
