Summer Means Daiquiris

Frozen Daiquiri
Daiquiris are a perfect summertime cocktail because they are one of the perfect cocktails to freeze.   Along with margaritas daiquiris have a robust enough flavor to avoid tasting watered down when frozen.

Not that you have to have frozen daiquiris in summer, any type of daiquiri would taste nice, but frozen drinks just seem to go hand in hand with lazy summer days, don't you think?

If you don't feel like a frozen daiquiri, then check out some of our other daiquiri recipes on these posts - daiquiris or more daiquiris because you can't fit enough of these cocktails on just one post!

Frozen Daiquiris


Summer time brings forth the season of the frozen daiquiri. A classic frozen daiquiri is always a refreshing drink, but in summer the most popular seem to be the strawberry and banana daiquiris.

Frozen Daiquiri


4 parts light rum
2 parts fresh lime juice
1 tsp bar sugar
½ cup cracked ice
lime slice

Combine all ingredients, except the lime slice, in a blender. Blend at low speed until slushy and pour into a chilled champagne flute to serve.

Strawberry Daiquiri


4 parts light rum
2 parts fresh lime juice
1 tsp sugar syrup
7 large fresh strawberries

You need to combine all of the ingredients, except one strawberry, with cracked ice in a blender. Blend until smooth and pour into a chilled cocktails glass. Garnish with the remaining strawberry.
