Using frozen berries eliminates the need for ice cubes. You still get that wonderful frozen consistency without watering down the strawberry flavor. I also like to throw in a few fresh strawberries if I have them for a burst of pure strawberry flavor.
- Strawberries: Fresh and Frozen. The fresh fruit adds the bold flavor of sweet strawberries and the frozen fruit gives it that icy texture for the best frozen strawberry daiquiri.
- Simple Syrup: Made with equal parts boiling water and sugar.
- Light Rum: We are using Bacardi Superior, we think it’s the best rum at an affordable price for this type of cocktail. Feel free to use your favorite.
- Fresh Lime Juice: Fresh is best but if you can’t get fresh limes, look for Nellie & Joe’s Key West Lime Juice. Lemon juice is another option if you don’t have limes.
