Living in Texas means that summers are hot and cocktails are frozen. Our go-to frozen drinks are usually margaritas but occasionally we like to mix it up with a frozen daiquiri, pina colada, or a glass of frose. Our recipe for frozen strawberry daiquiris is quick, easy, and refreshing.
Key Ingredients and Substitutions
Frozen Strawberry Daiquiris are simple to make with just a few key ingredients so there is no reason to ever buy a frozen mixer again.
The full ingredient list and measurements are listed in the printable recipe below.
- Rum: Daiquiris are made with white rum. There is no reason to splurge on the expensive stuff since it is getting mixed with berries and lime but we would also suggest that you not cheap out. Buy a mid-priced, good rum.
- Strawberries: You will need some fresh and frozen. If all you can find is frozen you can allow them to come to room temperature before making the simple syrup.
- Strawberry Simple Syrup: We use homemade strawberry simple syrup instead of regular simple syrup or another sweetener like agave. It adds additional strawberry flavor to make this the best frozen strawberry daiquiri. In a pinch, you can substitute agave nectar or store-bought simple syrup for the strawberry simple syrup.
- Lime: It isn’t a daiquiri without the lime.
