Strawberry daiquiri recipe

Ever tried to make a strawberry daiquiri at home? Alex and I are on a kick of frozen alcoholic drinks this summer. First it was our frozen margaritas (so good), and then our frozen sangria (double good!). And now, Alex has created this homemade strawberry daiquiri recipe. It tastes approximately 100 times better than the strawberry daiquiri mix from the store! And he added a fun lime daiquiri layer to the top, which makes it look even more festive. Basically: this is the best strawberry daiquiri recipe and you need to add it to your life: stat.

How to make this strawberry daiquiri recipe

This strawberry daiquiri is pure strawberry: it’s just sweet enough, with just the right back-end flavor of rum. Then the lime layer adds another level of complexity: it looks beautiful as a garnish, and as it melts it adds extra tangy flavor! One nice thing about this recipe is that it has no refined sugar: it’s naturally sweetened with maple syrup. But you’ll never notice the difference!

This strawberry daiquiri recipe we first serve to Alex’s sister while our kids were having a sleepover. It was an epic cousin sleepover: we went for ice cream, made homemade pizza (with our easy pizza sauce and best pizza dough), and had movie night with popcorn. It was so much fun: but by the end of the night, the adults were exhausted! Three boys under the age of 7 can do that to you, I guess.

So once all the littles were in bed, we pulled out the blender to make this strawberry daquiri recipe. And man was it good! It was literally the perfect recipe for some tired parents reclaiming the evening!

Here’s how to make the best strawberry daiquiri recipe:

  1. Make the lime daiquiri: In a blender, blend ice, lime juice, maple syrup, and rum. Place it in the freezer while you make the strawberry daiquiri layer.
  2. Make the strawberry daiquiri: In the same blender, blend frozen strawberries, lime juice, maple syrup, and rum.
  3. Serve: Place the strawberry daiquiri layer in a glass, then top with the lime daiquiri layer. Serve garnished with a lime slice!

A few daiquiri tips

So, just a few things to keep in mind when you’re making this strawberry daiquiri recipe:

  • Use best quality rum. The better the quality of rum, the tastier the drink.
  • Use best quality frozen strawberries. We tried this with a few different types of frozen strawberries: the strawberry daiquiri was light years better with the best quality brand.
  • If you’d like, freeze or chill your rum. When we made this strawberry daiquiri recipe for the photograph, we chilled our rum in a cocktail shaker to get it really cold. You also can throw the rum in the freezer the night before to keep the drink very cold. But, this step is not required!

And that’s it! Let us know if you try out this strawberry daiquiri recipe: and if it helps for exhausted parent evenings like ours! Or a bridal shower. Or a baby shower. Or a girl’s night out. Or a cookout. Or a pool party. Or…really anytime!

    This was ABSOLUTELY delicious! I will definitely be making again. Doing the little extra step of having the lime topper is SO worth it. Thanks for another great recipe!
