Frozen Strawberry Daiquiris for #SundaySupper

My friend, Christie of A Kitchen Hoor's Adventures, is hosting this week's Sunday Supper.  Christie chose the fun topic of  Simple Cocktails and Mocktails for relaxing pool side.

We have been having gorgeous weather here in Michigan and I have been spending tons of time in the pool so this theme is perfect for me.  Thanks, Christie!


I drink a fair share of iced tea out here in the pool, some is spiked and some is not but I have already shared Iced Tropical Rooibos, SpIced Tea and Tipsy Palmers.  

I did decide to share a cocktail with you today so please drink responsibly and obey all laws pertaining to your Country in regards to legal age limit for consuming alcohol.  In the USA you must be 21 years of age and should never drink and drive regardless of your age.

That being said....I cannot wait to share this delicious, frosty cold, refreshing cocktail with you today. Now you can take the easy route and use a strawberry flavored daiquiri mix that you find at your local liquor store.  I often use these mixes especially during the winter months when fresh fruit isn't abundant and my freezer needs to be restocked.



Today's version of this Frozen Strawberry Daiquiri was made with garden fresh Michigan Strawberries courtesy of my adorable little Angel Face.  How can this drink not be luscious when such sweet little hands picked the fruit with which it was made?


First I cleaned, hulled and halved about a quart of the strawberries.  I added some sugar and allowed them to macerate in the refrigerator overnight. The following day I poured the strawberries and all the juices into my vitamix but any good blender will work.


I added 1 1/2 cups of white rum to the mixture.  This will make enough for 4 large frozen daiquiris.


2 1/2 cups of ice on top of all that strawberry and rum goodness will make this daiquiri icy cold and oh so refreshing.


The final element was a lime that I peeled and chunked to place in the vitamix.  Should your blender not be as heavy duty then you may just want to add the juice of 1 lime.


I hit the puree button on my machine and got busy adding a sugar rim to 4 chilled glasses.  This is completely optional but you are sitting around waiting anyway so what the heck.


Pass out the swim towels to your friends before you start pouring so they can use it to wipe the drool from their chins.  Divide the mixture between 4 glasses, pass them out and head to the pool....It is going to be a delightful afternoon!


You will find links to all the other  Simple Cocktail and Mocktail creations under this recipe.  I hope you enjoy them and have a great summer.

Frozen Strawberry Daiquiris

1 qt. strawberries
