The basic Daiquiri is lime flavored and there is a frozen version, but this Strawberry Daiquiri is much more popular. It is a perfect summer cocktail, a boozy fresh fruit smoothie that is very hard to resist.
The drink is very easy, just pile everything in a blender and let her whirl until perfectly blended. This is a basic recipe and many fans of the drink will have an adaptation of their own. A friend of mine uses nothing but Captain Morgan and his daiquiris are always a hot commodity.
Fresh strawberries are great, but frozen does just as well and make this drink even easier. You may also want to play with the orange liqueur. Triple sec is common, but you may enjoy another even more.
