Tasteful Tuesday: Classic Frozen Daiquiri

July 16th, 2019

Frozen Cocktail Recipe

There’s nothing like a summer week with high temperatures and sun to inspire a frozen cocktail recipe. And today, we’re keeping it simple with a classic daiquiri recipe (if you have strawberries on hand, this recipe is just as refreshing), using the 2-1-½ ratio. If you are craving more of that lime flavor, we recommend adding just one teaspoon more of the freshly squeezed juice; a little goes a long way! And if you are without a blender or prefer your drink on the rocks, combine the ingredients in a cocktail shaker and enjoy.

What You’ll Need:

  • 1½ cups crushed iced
  • 2 ounces light rum
  • 1 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
    (make sure to strain the pulp)
  • ½ ounce simple syrup
  • Lime wedge for garnish, optional

Directions:

  1. Add all ingredients to a blender. Pulse, then blend until a slushy consistency is reached. If the consistency is too thin, add more ice ¼ cup at a time. If the consistency is too thick, add more lime juice or simple syrup (depending on if you want a more tart or sweet flavor) two teaspoons at a time.
  2. Pour into a chilled glass, garnish with a lime wedge (if desired) and enjoy!

Pour the rum, lime juice, and simple syrup over the ice, cover, and shake well. Remove the ice from your serving glass and strain the drink into it. Serve immediately.
