Good news: you don’t need to travel to a tropical island to sip on a frozen layered daiquiri this summer. By creating one base recipe and simply swapping in different fruits, we figured out the formula to the ultimate summer drink. Blending the lightest layer (pineapple) first means you don’t even have to clean out the blender between flavors. Feel free to swap in your favorite liquor for the rum, such as brandy or tequila. Alternatively, omit the rum for a fun booze-free treat. No matter how you enjoy it, we guarantee it will be just the refreshment you need.

Our Editors’ Favorite Summer Entertaining Staples
When it comes to entertaining, there are some essentials: food, booze, tunes—you know the drill. But over the years, we’ve found some handy products that elevate our get-togethers and make our lives easier in the process. Whether it’s for a small gathering or a full-blown party, here are our editors’ favorite things to have on hand for hosting.
Chickpea, Roasted Pepper, and Radicchio Salad
At the peak of summer it’s tempting and okay to chop up a bunch of super fresh ingredients and serve them with a drizzle of olive oil, some flaky salt, and cracked pepper. This salad was created in the spirit of letting fresh ingredients shine, but adds a few extra super quick layers of flavor. Namely, thinly sliced Vidalia onion is briefly marinated in red wine vinegar to take off its edge before the rest of the salad is tossed in. Canned chickpeas bulk up the dish into dinner and torn fresh mozzarella cheese adds the perfect dash of creamy richness.
