Ingredients Needed for the Best Strawberry Daiquiri

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.

How to Make a Strawberry Daiquiri

  1. Place fresh and frozen strawberries into a blender or food processor along with simple syrup, rum and lime juice.
  2. Blend until smooth.
  3. Serve in your favorite cocktail glass and garnish with fresh strawberries.

For the best results use blender or food processor to make a homemade strawberry daiquiri. I blew out my blender some time back so I made these in my food processor, either way it couldn’t be easier.

Strawberry daiquiris can be served in any glass that you prefer. I like to serve them in old fashioned glasses for casual occasions or coupe glasses for cocktail parties.

Best Occasions for Strawberry Daiquiris

Serve strawberry daiquiris for a date night in, girl’s night or cocktail parties. They are delicious enough for special occasions like July 4th celebrations, Valentine’s Day or New Year’s Eve parties. It’s also easy enough for casual gatherings like a pool party on a hot summer day. 

More Daiquiri Cocktails to Try

  • Frozen daiquiris are popular for any occasion. Our Peach Daiquiris are always a hit and lately we’ve been combining two of our favorites for a Strawberry Peach Daiquiri.
  • The classic Daiquiri is made simply with lime. The original daiquiri sours were  the shaken daiquiri, not frozen. The frozen varieties became popular a little later. Either way you serve them, they are delicious.

        1. Hi George,
          Everyone has the option of using the “jump to recipe” button at the top to avoid my banal drivel and just get the free recipe or buy a cookbook.

          ~ Milisa

        2. Dear George- Is your rude comment truly necessary? Perhaps the rum will present you with a more agreeable attitude. Thank you Melisa for this easy & delish recipe!

          1. Hi Kay,
            Next time, use the “jump to recipe” button at the top of the page and you can easily access the recipe card without all of my nonsense stories. Also do you realize I’m a real person here, providing you a recipe for free?

            ~ Milisa

          2. Did you not notice the jump to recipe option, or do you just like to complain?

        3. You are very rude and ignorant. It isn’t hard to see your options at the top of this page. If you read her story it was because you were in to big a hurry to move down.

        4. They all do it. I don’t get it either but every recipe or directions we get on Pinterest there is a life story behind it.

    1. This comment is wrong on so many levels. Gimme gimme gimme, how old are you? And a little courtesy for someone who works hard to put a post up please! At the very top of this post it says “jump to recipe”. Click on that and you jump right to the recipe, with no foul language needed!

    1. Jenn,

      This was delicious!! An alcoholic slushie?! Dangerous but so tasty! Thanks for sharing your recipe! 🙂

      1. Oops!! I got confused with where I scrolled to comment! I think I replied to someone instead! Didn’t mean to call you Jenn!! 😂

  1. How many does this particular recipe make? And if I make this recipe for one or two people should I keep it in freezer until I or we get thru it all? Or is refrigerator ok?

  2. Nevermind figured it out, made it tonight! Wonder what it would be like without the simple syrup? I will try that next Very good thank you!

    1. Hi! I was wondering how many cups it makes? It just says 2 servings, but I want 5o make ot for an event, so I need to be able to put it into bulk numbers.

  3. I find it quite annoying when I go to a site to get a recipe and all I get is all these stories and commentary and never can find the recipe!

        1. I don’t understand these comments. Right under the recipe name, you can click on “jump to recipe”

  4. Very good! This is a great cocktail if you don’t care for a strong alcohol taste. I subbed club soda for the lemon-lime soda. I rimmed the glass with granulated sugar. Thanks you for sharing.

    1. Hi Austin,
      Next time, just use the “jump to recipe” at the top of the page and you can skip the information and stories in between.

      ~ Milisa

  5. This daiquiri looks so refreshing and yummy. My hubby and I are definitely making this for the weekend. I can’t wait to make these! Saved to my bookmarks!

  6. Enjoyed this on yet another hot day, and it was the perfect taste of the tropics! Easy, refreshing and delicious!

  7. I used agave syrup and it was perfect. I’m sure any type of syrup would work, granulated sugar may not dissolve properly because of how cold it is. Great recipe! Well done Mellisa 🙂

  8. Definitely a “miss” on the proportions. Does not even come close to the classic definition of a “daiquiri” with an ingredient-to-rum ratio of more than 8 to 1. You should rename this recipe to “non-daiquiri slushy”. It’s fine what you did; just don’t dare call it a daiquiri! Pu-leeze!

      1. If people don’t want to read a nice “blog”, “short story” then use All Recipes or Food Network STOP all the negative trolling. Thanks for another great recipe!

  9. Dis shiz do be some good shiz! Yall gnome wha’ im sayin yo? Shiz do be slappin harder n fugg yoooo. Dis whaz up, yessir!

  10. I’ll never pass up on making daiquiris and really loved your recipe! They were a hit with my guest! I’m looking forward to the warmer weather where I will be enjoying them often!

  11. I find it extremely annoying all the people complaining about how they have to read a story before getting to the recipe. All you have to do is simply scroll or his the “jump to recipe ” button (which I have seen many people say). Why is it that everyone has to be so rude to someone posting a FREE recipe. They obviously don’t understand what goes into creating a recipe or posting it for everyone to see. They just want instant gratification and can’t take literally 1 second to push a button or scroll to the bottom. Also, you might read the post before the recipe as sometimes it offers pictures of the process, different variations or other useful information. I swear people nowadays never learned “if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.”

    1. Hi Athena,
      Thanks for stopping by and I couldn’t agree more! My grandma taught me not to say anything if I didn’t have anything nice to say!

      ~ Milisa

  12. I have this recipe printed out and stuck to the fridge, that’s how often I make it in during the summer! So refreshing!

      1. 5 stars
        Do you have other daiquiris recipes which do not include strawberries. Husband and a friend of ours has diverticulitis and cannot have the seeds. I’ll definitely make this for me. LOL. Thank you for sharing.

  13. I’ll be trying this out tonight! I read the comments and just wanted to say that you didn’t even write that much “extra” content. And some people actually understand the blogging aspect of sharing recipes. Thanks for sharing this! I’m excited to try it!

  14. Can’t wait to try the daiquiri. Hate the rude comments. If you can’t say something nice keep it to yourself. You aren’t impressing anyone just making yourself look like a fool. Again, thank you for the recipe.
