What Is a Daiquiri?

A daiquiri is a type of cocktail that blends rum, citrus juice, and sugar. Daiquiris can be served chilled, over ice, or frozen (like this one!). There are plenty of types of daiquiris, but one of the most common variations is frozen strawberry daiquiri.

What's In a Strawberry Daiquiri?

Here's what you'll need to make a frozen strawberry daiquiri at home:

· Ice: Frozen strawberry daiquiris are all about the slush, so ice is a must.
· Sugar: Strawberries add their own sweetness, but white sugar takes things up a notch.
· Strawberries: Use store-bought frozen strawberries. If you have a bounty of fresh berries, freeze your own or just use them fresh.
· Juices: You'll need lime juice and lemon juice.
· Rum: Classic daiquiris are made with white rum.
· Soda: Opt for a lemon-lime carbonated soda, such as Sprite.

"Made with fresh squeezed juice and strawberries — delicious," says SWD1123. "My husband and I enjoyed these on a hot summer night. We forgot to add the lemon-lime soda at first sip, it took it to the next level when added."

"These are so good," raves dajklm06. "Me and my 5-year-old mixed them up together. We scooped her out a glass before I added the rum. She loved it and so did I! They are wonderful!!"

"Wonderful daiquiri recipe," according to CRYSTAL-LYNN. A perfect balance of berry, citrus, and rum. Usually I fiddle with recipes after the first try, but with this one, there's no need."
