This Strawberry Daiquiri recipe is the most refreshing summer drink you’ll ever taste! Made with fresh strawberries, it has tons of strawberry flavor – and rum – although you can make it a virgin daiquiri whenever you want!

Frozen Strawberry Daiquiri

This frozen daiquiri is the best drink for any warmer months or whenever you want to feel like you’re on a tropical island. This is one of those recipes that I always get when I’m on the beach or poolside, therefore I wanted to make a homemade strawberry daiquiri that you could drink from your house!

Classic daiquiris have a perfect slushy consistency mixed with a lot of alcohol (rum). I use fresh and frozen berries to make this scream summer flavor! But don’t fear – if you want a virgin daiquiri it’s easy to make with this recipe. This is the BEST Strawberry Daiquiri – no matter how you make this recipe, I know it will be a refreshing drink of your dreams!

Ingredients Needed

  • Strawberries: A pound of strawberries is needed – you’ll freeze half of them.
  • Rum: Use any flavor rum you like – white rum, coconut rum, or spiced rum. Any brand too, like Malibu or Bacardi.
  • Simple Syrup: For sweetness – you can also use a few teaspoons white sugar.
  • Lime Juice: Brightens up the flavor of the cocktail. I like using fresh squeezed lime juice.

Variations

  • Slice and freeze half a pound of fresh strawberries to act as the ice in the recipe or use a half pound of frozen strawberries instead.
  • Virgin Strawberry Daiquiri – omit rum and replace it with 4 ounces water.
  • This same recipe can be done with peaches or watermelon – or really any fruit. Just use half frozen and half fresh!

How to make a Strawberry Daiquiri

  • Remove stems from strawberries and slice in half. Freeze half of the berries (8 ounces).
  • Add fresh berries and frozen berries to the jar of a high speed blender. Add rum, simple syrup, and lime juice. Blend until you get a smooth slushy texture.
  • Pour into glass. Garnish with an extra strawberry and/or lime slice or lime wedge.
  • To make non-alcoholic: omit rum and use water in place of the rum (4 oz).

Expert Tips

  • Plan ahead to get half of the strawberries in the freezer so you are not rushing it at the last minute – or grab a bag of frozen berries and use half frozen and half fresh.
  • You can serve a daiquiri in really any cocktail glass, but I love a hurricane glass or margarita glass.
  • Serve immediately. I don’t recommend storing it.

FAQs

Can you use vodka instead of rum?

Really you can use anything you like – a daiquiri would also be great with tequila or vodka.
