The history of the Daiquiri has been done to death on this web site. Suffice to say it was invented one evening in Santiago de Cuba when the gin ran out. A Gimlet recipe was adapted into the Daiquiri and everyone kept on boozing. The Cubans adapted the drink every way from Wednesday, including the invention of the faffy Strawberry Daiquiri. In the Southern states of the USA, it’s all about frozen cocktails, and today’s Frozen Strawberry Daiquiri takes the idea from the Bacardi web site and applies it to the original, less-sweet Daiquiri recipe.
It is a brain freeze.
Frozen Strawberry Daiquiri
- 45ml Bacardi Carta Blanca
- 25ml fresh lime juice
- 15ml simple syrup (Bacardi ups this to 25ml for a sweeter drink)
- 7 strawberries, hulled
- Handful of ice
Put all the ingredients with the ice in a blender and blitz. Pour into a highball glass and add a straw. Garnish with a strawberry.
