One of the classic drinks that turn an average BBQ into a summer soirée, a dinner party into a house party and hump day into Friday night is the daiquiri. The star of the traditional daiquiri is fresh lime. But with the abundance of summer produce, you've got to mix it up! Try these fun combos and remix your summer.

Add a few tablespoons of chopped fresh herbs to your shaker. Our fave? Mint!
Make it a Hemingway daiquiri
The La Floradita bar in Cuba invented this daiquiri just for the famed writer. Add 1/4 oz of fresh grapefruit juice and 1/4 oz of Luxardo Maraschino to your shaker and you're in business.
Everyone loves at little strawberry
Be a crowd-pleaser with this one. Muddle 3 strawberries in your shaker before adding other ingredients. Top each cocktail with a sliced strawberry. Make new friends.
