If you’re over 21, the only antidote to New Orleans in August is the frozen daiquiri. First slurped in the small Cuban town of Daiquiri in 1898, the adult version of the sno-ball comes in a myriad of flavors and Technicolor hues. There are walk up windows for ordering the potent refresher all over town and drive-through daiquiri shacks are also particular to the New Orleans landscape. Even when the temperature is 90 with 90 percent humidity, a frozen margarita daiquiri from New Orleans Original Daiquiris/Fat Tuesdays will set your teeth to chattering. Because this is New Orleans, the daiquiri also has its own fete, September’s month-long Daiquiri Season with 30 days of daiquiri tours, special events, and tastings all around town.
