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.
Jennings Cox, a mining engineer in Cuba, created the Daiquiri recipe after running out of gin for his guests. He wanted something tastier than rum, so he added lime juice and sugar to it. And it spread like wildfire.
Today, you can order a daiquiri a million different ways – strawberry, banana, pineapple, frozen or not. Tipsy even serves up a Bubblegum Daiquiri recipe.
The classic daiquiri recipe makes a smooth liquid blend of rum, sugar and lime. Of course, innovation resulted in hundreds of different recipes over the last century, including frozen ones!
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 from the original. You maybe wouldn’t know they’re the same cocktail if you looked at them side-by-side. Still, the only difference is frozen strawberries blended into the cocktail with ice. This creates the perfect drink for sweet, sippable poolside summer treat, ideal for cooling off or getting the party started!
