The beautiful sunshine of a warm day, the vibrant hue of flowers against a backdrop of luscious green, a frosty, delicious strawberry daiquiri to sip on or to slug down– ahh, the great days of summer! There is nothing better than this cool refresher with a kick! Whip up a batch of these when you are having people over or when you just feel liked treating yourself to a mouth-watering refresher. It’s delicious, it’s frosty, and it’s amazingly easy to make.
If you’re making strawberry daiquiris for a crowd, you can make a few batches up and keep them in the freezer until you need them. The alcohol will keep them from freezing into a solid brick, and you can put them in the refrigerator for a few minutes before serving and reblend them so they can get slushy again (you may have to use just a little more ice).
The basis of this recipe is frozen strawberries, so you can keep the ingredients on hand all year round – why wait for summer to enjoy daiquiris. Whether you choose to make them with no alcohol or with a little extra, you will absolutely love the taste of this amazing cocktail. And, because they are really just fruit and ice, they aren’t filling – so make enough for seconds, even thirds, and, well, maybe even . . .
By the way, if you don’t like rum or don’t have any, you can use vodka for the same great taste. Or make it special to your own taste by using whatever you have on hand!
