Frozen Strawberry Daiquiris

We’re definitely Summer weather people.  I love living in New York, but cannot STAND the Winter.  I complain about the cold every single day from November to March

And, yeah, the 90 degree temps we’re having right now can be a bit much, but nothing a swim in the pool and an icy frozen beverage can’t remedy!

So bring it on!  Let’s combat this heat wave with a delicious batch of Frozen Strawberry Daiquiris simply made with some fresh berries, lime juice and white rum

I have a 16 ounce package of fresh strawberries and plan to freeze about 12 ounces or 3 cups.  The frozen berries will take place of ice so the drinks aren’t watered down

We’ll need to core and halve the berries before freezing

I like to use a small paring knife and rotate the berry instead of the knife

 

 

Place the berries on a small sheet pan and pop them in the freezer.  I actually planned ahead and prepped these so they had 24 hours to freeze

We have the remaining cup of fresh strawberries, some simple syrup, the juice of 2 limes and rum

I’m using 1 1/2 ounces of liquor per drink and this makes about 4 drinks, so I’ll measure out 6 ounces of rum

Simple syrup is equal parts water and sugar, boiled until the sugar dissolves and then chilled.  You can make in a large quantity and keep in your fridge so cocktail hour isn’t put on hold

Measure out about a 1/4 cup of simple syrup and keep on hand in case you prefer to add a little more sweetness

Last ingredient is the lime.  I love all things that are tart, just ask my husband.  I suggest that you start out by adding about an ounce of fresh lime and add a little at a time to taste

Start with a handful of the frozen berries.  My blender has a Frozen Drink setting.  If your blender doesn’t have that setting, just pulse a few times

I alternate some fresh berries and frozen, adding in a little of the lime and simple syrup to thin it out

Blend until you have a smooth consistency.  Now you can stop here if you want to make virgin daiquiris or add in the rum.  That’s my plan
