The days getting longer and the sun is breaking through the clouds after months of rain leading us to believe that summer is indeed almost here. With warmer weather comes seasonal cocktails such as frosé, piña coladas, poptails, and daiquiris. Though we may not be sipping our favorite summer drinks at our favorite rooftop bar or on the beach anytime soon, we can celebrate World Cocktail Day (May 13) at home on our porches and decks. To add to the festivities, Bacardi Limited is introducing a portfolio cocktail event, selling cocktail courier kits of six different drinks, each using a spirit from the Bacardi brand family: BACARDÍ Rum Banana Daiquiri, Patrón Watermelon Basil Marg, Grey Goose French Passion, Bombay English Garden Gimlet, Dewar’s Scotch Emporium Highball, and The Cazadores Huntsman.
The World Cocktail Day Kits are delivered to your door, providing all the ingredients and instructions you need to make a great cocktail. The kits are available for sale in a mini, which yields two drinks, and a classic, with enough ingredients to serve eight people. But, if you’d rather use your own ingredients for your summer cocktail, or you just want the directions on-hand, the recipe for the BACARDÍ Rum Banana Daiquiri is below.

1.5 parts BACARDÍ Superior Rum
0.25 part Banana
