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.
