What a heavily inspired month to be a rum fan! We started the month off early with National Piña Colada Day and now today, July 19th, is National Daiquiri Day. I think a Tiki party is in due order somewhere…
But let’s not waste anymore time and get to planning our Daiquiri Day! While I’m all for the classic recipe (light rum, lime juice, simple syrup), there’s something that seems very ‘nostalgic’ to be about the frozen, blended kind on a day like today. So while Jay-Z keeps busy sippin’ on his Mai Tais, I’m gonna give this Frozen Strawberry Daiquiri the affection it deserves on this most distinguished of holidays.
Frozen Strawberry Daiquiri
2 oz Light rum
1/2 oz Hiram Walker Triple Sec
1 oz Lime juice
1/2 tsp Sugar
1 cup ice
Combine all ingredients in a blender until well mixed. Pour into a collins or hurricane glass and serve with a straw.
