The only way to celebrate National Daiquiri Day in San Antonio properly is to do it poolside. Here are a few hip hotels with great pools to lounge by and sip daiquiris.
The Westin Riverwalk
Sit poolside at The Westin and enjoy strawberry, mango, and peach daiquiris from the Zocca Bar. Zocca Bar is open to the public and their flavorful daiquiris start at $12.
For those looking to celebrate big, the JW Marriot’s Riverside Grill offers poolside strawberry, mango, and raspberry daiquiris for $9. “The River Bluff Water Experience exclusively offers guests six acres of pools, fountains, waterfalls, rivers, and an abundance of poolside lounges to soak in the sun.”
Celebrate National Daiquiri Day and Ernest Hemingway’s Birthday (July 20) with Havana’s Hemingway Daiquiri- Mount Gay Silver Eclipse, Lime, Grapefruit, and Maraschino Cherry. Havana’s bar is open to the public and typically serves daiquiris for 9 bucks, but in honor of Hemingway’s birthday on Saturday, Hemingway Daiquiris will be only $5.
