Perfect Strawberry Daiquiri

New! You can now save recipes. It's free!

Few things are as refreshing and delightful on a hot day as a frosty and vibrant frozen daiquiri. Even for diehard fans of Piña Colada, the intoxicating blend of juicy, red strawberries brightened with lime is too sweet to deny.

For best results, we call for two types of strawberries: fresh and frozen. Using frozen strawberries gives body to the drink without watering down the flavor like ice would. Using a high-powered blender ensures a smooth and thick daiquiri. Fresh strawberries add juiciness and a syrupy quality, keeping the drink from being too thick. That squeeze of lime? Essential. The fresh citrus kick will make the strawberries shine even brighter in flavor.

If you use all frozen strawberries, you'll likely need a spoon to enjoy the treat—which might be exactly what you're in the mood for some days!

If you love this drink, then we think you'll really love our Strawberry Frosé! Same fruit, same icy vibe, slightly different punch.
