Think un-frozen grown up daiquiri cocktail, now think tangerine and watermelon flavors...now close your mouth, you're drooling!

I think daiquiris get a bad rep to the cocktail enthusiast.  It used to be when I thought daiquiri I thought frozen, way-too-sweet drinks with an umbrella and maraschino cherry on top.  Well guess what, these daiquiris won't just change your way of thinking about daiquiris, it will make you crave them fiercely and you'll never go back to those frozen weird mix daiquiris again!

These 2 daiquiri versions are equally refreshing, and surprisingly delicious, you're only dilemma will be which one to make today?
