And in the kingdom of daiquiris, no one is rather as popular or as pretty as the strawberry daiquiri. Between the exciting red colour and the sweet taste, there’s a decent reason why all the good outdoor parties have someone working a blender and a bowl of strawberries. A good drink can make or break a party and the fresh strawberry daiquiri is never one to dissatisfy you. There is a bonus that, my favourite daiquiri recipe requires no ice to make, so there’s no need to concern about the taste and texture of the drink altering as you sip. And also, who wants to watch the status of their drink while they’re trying to enjoy the nice weather. With a properly made daiquiri (like this one) you can enjoy both!

Which Alcohol You Should Add In A Daiquiri?
For the daiquiri, rum is the chosen alcohol for this drink. Well, it’s a combination of rum and lime that make the trademark for a daiquiri, so without adding rum, you cannot “technically” make a daiquiri. But if you’re craving a fruity drink and don’t have any rum available, any clear and unflavored alcohol (like vodka) should do the trick.
Which Rum Is Best For A Strawberry Daiquiri?
I’m always a little uncertain to give brand references on alcohol, but in this case, there are a few “classic” rums you can seek out for a daiquiri in the market. Such as:
Bacardi – which is sold almost anywhere and has a reasonable price point according to the bottle size.
Flor de Caña – Which is Similar in price to Bacardi, but might be harder to find.
Cana Brava – this one is a little more expensive than the previous two, but tends to show up on bartender top lists.
What Is Frozen Strawberry Daiquiri?
As already mentioned above, the two key elements for a good daiquiri are rum and lime juice. Elsewhere that, you can also make it creative with the fruits and flavours, but personally, I like to keep things simple. This specific recipe gets its flavour from frozen strawberries which make this drink slushy, so there is no need to worry about ice melting. You can add a sweetener of your choice (sugar, simple syrup, agave, etc). So we hope that you are very clear about how to make a strawberry daiquiri.
