The flavor of a handmade strawberry daiquiri produced with real, frozen strawberries is far superior to that of a store-bought mix. To make this traditional drink, all you need is a blender, a few simple ingredients, and five minutes.


  • 1 pound frozen strawberries
  • 6 tablespoons simple syrup (or pure maple syrup)
  • ¼ cup lime juice
  • 1 cup best quality white or light rum
  • 1 cup ice
  • ⅛ teaspoon kosher salt


  • In a blender or Nutribullet, combine all of the ingredients.
  • Blitz until all of the strawberries have been blitzed.
  • Taste and adjust the sweetness with additional syrup and the sourness with lime (and booze if you dare!).
  • Pour into glasses (see video for consistency) and top with fresh strawberries to serve!


  • 1. To obtain the right slushy texture, I combine fresh and frozen strawberries. If you simply use frozen, it will turn out like a sorbet that you must eat with a spoon!
  • 2. Sugar Syrup – combine equal parts white sugar and water in a saucepan and heat until the sugar melts. Pour into a jar and set aside to cool before using. OR substitute any other liquid syrup of your choice.
  • 3. White rum – Bacardi (my preference), Havana Club, or other of your choosing
  • 4. VARIATION: Use 90 mL (3 oz) white rum and 30 mL (1 oz) Cointreau. It gives it a little additional tropical flavor! This is something I do frequently.
