Strawberry Daiquiri Ingredients

  • White Rum – The base for all strawberry daiquiri recipes, be sure to use a high-quality version (or at least your favorite) as the flavor really comes through.
  • Simple Syrup – You can buy this premade or make your own using the instructions down below.
  • Frozen Berries – Either whole or sliced will work, but you may find it easier to blend slices.
  • Lime Juice – Always use freshly squeezed and not bottled. Keep citrus at room temperature or microwave for a few seconds to get the most juice out of it.

How To Make Strawberry Daiquiri

Step One: Add everything to the blender and give it a whirl.

Step Two: Pour into cocktail glasses — hurricane or margarita styles work best —and serve with a twist of lime or fresh berries for garnish!

Pro Tip

If you don’t have a strong blender, I highly recommend using crushed ice instead of cubes. Use the crush setting on your ice maker or place cubes in a Ziploc bag and smash them with a rolling pin.

How do you make strawberry daiquiri recipes non-alcoholic?

If you need to make a virgin strawberry daiquiri, all you need to do is leave out the rum!

If it seems too thick, add a little extra lime juice or use less ice.

Frozen Cocktail Recipe Tips and Tricks

  • Add liquids first. This helps everything to blend evenly, and the solids won’t get stuck in the blades.
  • Start on low. Work your way up in speed so the strawberry daiquiri ingredients don’t splash onto the sides and lid.
  • Don’t over-blend! The longer it runs, the more watery the texture will become. Stop as soon as the ingredients are combined and have an icy consistency.
  • Want to rim the glasses? Run a wedge of lime along the edge of each glass, then flip it upside down and dip into sugar.

    For a colorful addition, use sanding sugar that’s found in the baking aisle with the sprinkles.
  • Create a tropical twist. I have another strawberry daiquiri recipe that replaces half of the white rum with Malibu and triple sec instead.

    The addition of coconut and orange flavors makes the drink extra delicious!

Strawberry Daiquiri Recipes FAQ

What is simple syrup?

It is a liquid sweetener used in drinks to add sweetness without a gritty texture.You can create your own by simmering ½ cup water with ½ cup granulated sugar in a saucepan on the stove until fully dissolved. Store whatever you don’t use in a jar in the refrigerator for up to 1 month.Otherwise, you’ll typically find bottled versions with the other cocktail mixers at the store.

Can I use fresh strawberries instead?

You can, but you might need to add extra ice to get that perfect frosty texture. Or, try a mix of fresh and frozen to achieve the right balance, and use more fresh slices as garnish!

Can I make this strawberry daiquiri recipe ahead of time?

If you blend your strawberry daiquiri ingredients together too soon, the drinks will unfortunately melt. You can, however, prep a few things to save some time!Measure all of the liquids into a large mason jar and pop it in the refrigerator. When you’re ready to serve, pour the mixture into the blender and add the frozen berries and ice.
