Summertime Strawberry Daiquiris

One of the best gifts that my beautiful wife ever gave me was a Margaritaville Iced Drink Machine.  I have used this machine to test and perfect many different drinks and tonight, I found the perfect Strawberry Daiquiri.  This drink tastes like a strawberry fruit roll-up and is the perfect drink for a warm summer night on the deck.  (We may or may not be doing that exact thing right now.)  This recipe will make 4 drinks in the traditional margarita style glass, as pictured. 

Here is what you will need:

4.5 - 5 Fl. Oz. of Bacardi Dragonberry Rum
3 Tbsp. of Sugar
9 Oz. of Cranberry Juice (Unsweetened if you prefer a little tartness.)
2 C. of Frozen Strawberries
(If you are using a blender use 1-2 C. of ice depending on how you would like the consistency.)

Directions:

Add all ingredients and if you are using the machine like I am, set the ice setting on Daiquiri, 2 glasses, and flip the switch.  If using a blender, add contents and blend until smooth.  Serve and enjoy!!

  2. Just one question: do these daiquiris have jalapenos in them??

  3. And, may I ask, why did you not slam me for misspelling daiquiris before? I certainly deserved it! I know the answer, though -- it's because you're nicer than I am!
