“What’s up? Not much over this way, just chillaxin and hoping to RHTS (raise hell this summer!)” Ha! Who else use to pass notes in high school and start them off that way?? Just me? Ok, maybe I’m telling my age. I was cleaning out my garage and came across my old high school yearbook, and a TON of those folded envelope-style letters (remember those).
After finding all those memories, I spent the next hour going down memory lane. Ahhhh, to be young and dumb again. What does this have to do with frozen strawberry daiquiris?
Frozen Daiquiris + Cute Boys+Secular Music=The BEST TEEN SUMMER EVER!
Well, I can’t see or hear the word daiquiri without thinking about that epic summer night of 1995! My grandma Barb and my mother went out of town and left my siblings and I home with my aunt Adri. Aunt Adri is “the fun” aunt! She always let my sisters and I venture out of our strict upbringing to explore the world, yet she was always there to keep us safe. Aunt Adri is the perfect blend of mother-aunt-bestie-ride or die, and all my friends loved her.
Well, that Saturday, Aunt Adri let us throw a mini house party! We had the speakers blasting the latest rap music (something my mother did not allow), had male friends over, and the daiquiris were flowing in every flavor under the sun!! For ONCE in our “church-going” lives, my sisters and I were “the cool kids” on the block!
That was the night I had my first alcoholic drink, a frozen strawberry daiquiri! Omg, it was soooo good! I may or may not have had a few too many! Yep, Aunt Adri , if you’re reading this, we spiked the drinks, sorry.
Frozen strawberry daiquiris remain one of my favorite cocktails to this day! Sweet and fruity always wins me over, and this frosty drink does not disappoint! It’s the perfect summer poolside companion.
Sweet, fruity and slightly tangy! I like my daiquiri’s on the sweet side with a faint rum taste and a faint lime aftertaste. You can adjust the measurements if you prefer a more tart and tangy daiquiri.
What Ingredients Goes Into A Frozen Strawberry Daiquiri?
Strawberries, lime juice, sugar, rum, and ice is all you’ll need to make these juicy strawberry daiquiris. Here’s the tea on all of the ingredients
Frozen Strawberries- This gives the daiquiri maximum strawberry flavor and requires less ice. It also gives an incredible creaminess.
Fresh Ripe Strawberries– Adding fresh strawberries lends a burst of strawberry flavor that only fresh strawberries can give and helps make blending easier. Make sure your strawberries are ripe and sweet.
Fresh Lime Juice– Adds tartness and amps up the strawberry flavor.
White Rum- This is just the right thing to do! Yes. Yes, it is.
Powdered Sugar- You NEED to add this. Don’t skip it, kay. It brings out ALL the flavors and makes this drink downright addictive.
Ice-Finishes it off with the perfect frosty texture!
