Best Ever Strawberry Daiquiris

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 (you know, for smoothies!) 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!

Oh my, can you tell this was one of the first recipes I ever wrote? I just use the can from the Bacardi Daiquiri Mix and pour it in there to measure it. I'll update the recipe to make it more clear!

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

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.

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 :)
