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!
My neighbors are going to be thrilled that I posted this “recipe”. They’re always asking what our secret is — now you all know!
