Frozen Strawberry Daiquiri Recipe

If you close your eyes and try to imagine a perfect summer moment, chances are it involves a sunny beach, a gentle breeze, good company, and a great drink — one that's cold, refreshing, delicious, and with just enough adult content in the ingredients to add to the relaxation. Now, open your eyes and feast them on the frozen strawberry daiquiris chef and recipe developer Ting Dalton of Cook Simply has put together to help you achieve your perfect summer moment.

"I love frozen strawberry daiquiris," Dalton says. "They bring a touch of summer and sea breezes at home. Sip [one] with friends at barbecues or summer parties and feel like you're in the Caribbean sunshine."

So if you've got five minutes and a few simple ingredients, then you're closer to that perfect summer moment than you may think — the beach, sun, and breeze are optional ... the delicious frozen strawberry daiquiri is not. 

Gather your ingredients for frozen strawberry daiquiri

It takes just five ingredients to make the perfect hot-weather cocktail, and those are frozen strawberries, sugar syrup, lime juice, white rum, and ice.

"If you have a fresh bunch of strawberries, just stick them in the freezer for a few hours before making the cocktail," Dalton says. "[And] if you don't have strawberries, you can use other fruits, too. Watermelon, banana, mango ... the choice is yours."

Add the ingredients to the blender and blend

There are just three steps before you'll have a delicious cocktail in your hand: measure, combine, and blend. But provided you dump your measured ingredients right into the blender, this really is a two-step drink!

So first off, dump the ice into the blender, then add the pound of frozen strawberries. Measure 5 tablespoons of sugar syrup and pour them in, then add the juice of a medium-sized lime. Finally, pour in a cup of white rum, then blend the ingredients on high (with the top on!) until they are completely combined and smooth.

Serve and adjust the taste, if needed

Pour the blended frozen strawberry daiquiris into glasses (ideally daiquiri glasses), and garnish them with an optional lime wedge or wheel and enjoy! You can play with the recipe some to ensure you enjoy the drinks thoroughly. "When in season, strawberries are sweet enough," Dalton says, "so you can [adjust how much] sugar syrup you use according to taste. And if you like it sweeter, just add more."

And of course you can always omit the booze for a virgin strawberry daiquiri that will taste great.

Make them ahead, if desired

Having a big party tomorrow and don't want to leave all the prep to day-of? Or hey, is the big party next week, or even next month? Why not plan ahead?

"You can make [the daiquiris] ahead and freeze a batch for up to three months, then defrost," Dalton says, adding: "As it becomes soft and pourable, you can serve. [It's] a great [option] if you want to make them ahead for a gathering."
