There are more than 70 locations in the U.S. of this franchised daiquiri shop, but it all started here in New Orleans and one of the busiest (usually) spots is on Bourbon Street.

Usually at the end of July, the French Quarter is overrun by bartenders, liquor brand ambassadors, and industry types in town for Tales of the Cocktail.

Even though it’s now being served out a window of the bar, it still is the best.

11. Cochon Butcher

930 Tchoupitoulas St
New Orleans, LA 70130

Daiquiri Paradise started with this original spot in Chalmette, now also in Harvey and a new shop opening in Metairie on Labor Day. The recipes haven’t strayed since 1989 — the strawberry is made with real strawberries and rum, and the pina colada is a dreamy blend of cream of coconut, vanilla ice cream milk, pineapple juice, 151, and white rums. Order them both — that’s a strawberry colada — for the best of both worlds.
