Strawberry Daiquiri

A Strawberry Daiquiri made with real strawberries is pretty amazing. Look at that almost creamy texture of the blend of fruit and ice! This drink is purely 80s vintage, those tropical drinks that made their way up from Miami and rum hot spots along with Caribbean music that really fueled a craze for the exotic at places like TGI Friday's all over the country.

The problem was that the cocktail was bastardized with strawberry sour mix to make them easier to pump out. A real Strawberry Daiquiri is sour with strawberry seeds! Too much sweetness be overkill.
  • 2 oz. light rum
  • 1 oz. lime juice
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • 7 large strawberries cored and chopped
Blend all ingredients with cracked ice (about 2 cups) except one strawberry saved for garnishing. Pour in a chilled cocktail glass or wine goblet. Garnish with the strawberry.
