Daiquiris

When there's no way to get a strawberry daiquiri near me, I need an easy strawberry daiquiri recipe to make at home. The daiquiri was invented in Daiquiri, Cuba. No joke. People typically think of this as a frozen "slush" drink, but that's not the daiquiri's purest form.

A Hemingway Daiquiri is step further into citrus than the simple daiquiri – you merely add grapefruit juice and the drink takes on a reddish hue. The Strawberry Daiquiri recipe looks quite different.

This creates a sweet, poolside summer treat. Start with the original, and work from there. Enjoy one of these sweet and simple cocktail recipes tonight...
