 Gazpacho is a Spanish classic, best made when juicy tomatoes are in season.

Like the Hurricane listed here, an authentic daiquiri has very little to do with the artificially flavored, frozen splooge version made ubiquitous by chain bars over the last 30 or 40 years. This was among Hemingway’s drinks of choice, and can easily be updated by using a flavored rum such as Whistling Andy Hibiscus-Coconut Rum or Bacardi Limon.

Daiquiri Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Daiquiri Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
