Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, but you would want to also add some ice to get that smooth frozen drink that a frozen daiquiri is all about. I haven't tried this recipe with fresh strawberries, but I would try 1-2 cups of ice for 2 cups of strawberries. You can always start off with less and add more if needed to get the consistency you want.
Absolutely! You will need some liquid to get everything blended up smooth, so I would add about ¼ - ½ cup of water. You could also use a different liquid, like apple juice, if you want to switch up the flavor some.
Of course! As long as your blender has the ability to crush ice to a smooth consistency, you can make this Strawberry Daiquiri the same way in your blender.
What is a Daiquiri?
A daiquiri is a simple cocktail that is made up of rum, simple syrup, and lime juice. That's it! A classic daiquiri is served over the rocks (ice).
Like all great things, the daiquiri has evolved over time and there are numerous variations of the classic daiquiri.
The one thing that is constant in a Daiquiri is the use of lime juice. This is something I learned while creating the recipe. I had no idea because I had never had a classic version and the frozen strawberry daiquiris I've had never tasted like they had lime in them!
You can make tons of different versions of non-frozen or frozen daiquiris by adding fruit or other ingredients to the base of rum, simple syrup, and lime juice.
A simple syrup is simply sugar and water heated to form a sweet syrupy liquid. I skip that part in this recipe because adding just a touch of sugar is all we needed and it's easy peasy!
Can I Make the Strawberry Daiquiri Mix ahead of time?
Yes, you can do this a couple of different ways.
If you just want the mix and no alcohol in it, I would make a simple syrup of sugar and water. So, for 2 cups of frozen strawberries, I would add ¼ cup of water and ¼ cup of sugar.
Heat the sugar and water until dissolved. Add in the strawberries and blend until smooth. Then freeze in a plastic freezer bag or ice cube trays.
When you are ready to make your strawberry daiquiris, simply add the mix to the blender, add in rum and blend.
If you wanted to have the whole thing ready to go with alcohol in it. Simply make the recipe as written and freeze in ice cube trays or in a plastic freezer bag. You can even freeze the mix in cube trays and then transfer to a freezer bag for easier storage.
When you are ready to mix up your drink, add it to the blender with about ½ cup of ice and blend until smooth.
The alcohol should prevent the mix from freezing solid, but if it is too hard to get out of the bag and into the blender, just let it sit out for a few minutes until it's soft enough to work with.
What Variations can I Make?
The possibilities are endless! Get creative and add in the ingredients you love.
I've added a banana for a frozen strawberry banana drink that was amazing.
You could add mixed berries instead of just strawberries.
Frozen mango would be great!
Or, if you wanted to skip the fruit all together and make a frozen classic daiquiri, simply replace the frozen strawberries with 2 cups of ice and I would increase the lime juice to ¼ cup and you might want to increase the sugar a bit so it isn't too sour.
So, what flavor are you going to make? Let me know in the comments!
