Best Ever Strawberry Daiquiris

Easy Strawberry Daiquiri Recipe

Typically I'm not big on semi-homemade recipes, and even when it comes to frozen drinks, we make them from scratch, juicing fresh limes and lemons for our frozen margaritas. However, my favorite strawberry daiquiri recipe calls for Bacardi Mixers Frozen Strawberry Daiquiri Mix. But don't think for a second that we just dump the mix in a blender with some rum and ice and call it a day...


Admittedly there's not a whole lot more to it, but it's those little extra touches that make this THE best strawberry daiquiri I've ever had -- not too sweet, not too tart, and deliciously thick and creamy. And it's hands down the easiest to make!

You'll need the Bacardi Mix, a package of frozen strawberries, a banana, and a bottle of coconut rum. Malibu Coconut Rum is our liqueur of choice -- the top shelf 24% alcohol version from the state store when we remember to buy during store hours. As for the banana, this is one of those occasions where I dip into my stash of frozen bananas to add creaminess and take away some of the tartness that strawberries can have.

We mix up our drinks in our Margaritaville Frozen Concoction Maker (LOVE this thing!), but a regular blender will do.

If you want to serve up a pretty strawberry daiquiri, you can dip the rims of your glasses in water or rub the rim with a cut lemon or lime. Then dip the glass in regular granulated sugar for a decorative look. Of course you can also just skip this step because they taste delicious either way!

    • http://unsophisticook.com Tara @ Unsophisticook

      LOL, not at all -- they go down pretty easy!

  • Rhonda

    I made this for a board game party with family and friends and it was the best drink I have ever made myself. Followed to the T and this will be my go to drink from now on. I would have never thought of this as my husband and I detest coconut. I asked him what he thought (before I bought the stuff) and he said he loves Malibu so I was off the the liquor store. Yum! Thank You for this recipe. It worked great in my Margarittaville machine!!

      So glad it was a hit, Rhonda! I always ask for my daiquiris and pina coladas to be made with coconut rum when we're out. It definitely adds that little extra something!

    My wife and I just got back from Vegas where we enjoyed several good strawberry daiquiris. I am now on a quest to find a great recipe. I'm very intrigued by this recipe although coconut and banana make me nervous. Are those flavors strong or real obvious in the finished product?

    • http://unsophisticook.com Tara @ Unsophisticook

      Oh, fun!!! No, I don't think either of the flavors are very strong. The banana really just serves to temper some of the tartness that strawberries have sometimes, and while I can definitely tell a difference when I use regular rum versus the coconut rum, I wouldn't say that it has an overpowering coconut flavor.

      I will say that they can be a bit dangerous because they have a tendency to kind of "sneak up on you". They really don't taste alcoholic at all so they go down really easy, even though we mix them pretty strong!

  • Mike

    I guess there's only one way for me to find out! It's sure to be a fun and tasty experiment. We plan on buying a margarittaville blendor as a gift to each other. See what Vegas does to you! Well let you know how it goes. Thanks!

    Outstanding. I agree.

  • Andrea

    It says 1 can coconut rum. Do you mean 1 cup?

    • Andrea

      Never mind, I read the instructions. DUH!!

      • http://unsophisticook.com Tara @ Unsophisticook

        LOL, no problem! I suppose I should measure out how much a can is at some point, but I never think about it when I'm making them -- and it's easier to just use the can. ;)

    I'm not much of a cocktail fan (usually go with a gin and soda or a craft beer), but I was checking some recipes out for a party I'm throwing in a week or so and found this - if there's a cocktail I'm going to make, it'll have strawberries in it (best fruit on EARTH). Thanks for the recipe :)

  • Christina

    Do you think it would make a difference (better or worse) to use fresh strawberrys instead of frozen??

    • http://unsophisticook.com Tara @ Unsophisticook

      Hi Christina! I don't think it should really make a difference either way as far as taste. Fresh strawberries may make it slightly thinner though, so you may need to add more ice to compensate.
