How to Make a Strawberry Daiquiri

Learn how to make a strawberry daiquiri and you'll never go back to store bought strawberry daiquiri mixes again. A cousin of the mojito, the daiquiri also hails from Cuba and is based on a trio of classic ingredients: lime juice, sugar and rum. Strawberries were later added by some to compensate for lesser-quality rum.

Today the strawberry daiquiri is as popular as the original daiquiri. This fruity, sweet cocktail is often a favorite of new drinkers since it is easy on the palate. Popular at parties, many celebrations are punctuated by the use of frozen daiquiri machines that churn out glasses of these sweet libations with little effort required.

If you're a purist, you'll want to make your own daiquiris from scratch instead of using a premade mix. Try this strawberry frozen daiquiri recipe for a drink you'll serve over and over again.
