A strawberry daiquiri made with ripe frozen strawberries, fresh lime juice, sugar, and white rum is the perfect cool-down treat!

Strawberry Daiquiri Ingredients
- Strawberries – Frozen. You can freeze your fresh strawberries, or purchase a bag already frozen. Just make sure the strawberries are nice and ripe so you get a good strawberry flavor.
- Rum – We like white rum for this recipe.
- Lime juice – Fresh limes work best but you can use bottled lime juice if you’re in a pinch.
- Sugar – Powdered sugar (also called confectioners sugar or icing sugar).
- Garnishes – Strawberry and lime wedges, granulated sugar for the rim, basil, mint, jalapeno.
How do you make frozen strawberry daiquiris? (step-by-step)
⭐ First, add frozen strawberries to your blender. By using frozen fruit instead of ice, you get a super flavorful and not watered down drink.
⭐ Next, add rum, fresh lime juice, and powdered sugar.
⭐ Then, blend until you hit a smooth slushie texture.
⭐ Finally, add fresh strawberries, water, or additional rum as needed to reach desired consistency.
Virgin Strawberry Daiquiri
To make the virgin (non-alcoholic) version of this recipe, just swap the rum for ginger-ale, sprite, or water. Yum!

Can you make strawberry daiquiris ahead of time?
Totally! If you want to still serve them frozen, then prepare the blended mixture and store it flat in a freezer safe gallon bag in the freezer.
When you’re ready to serve, pull it out of the freezer and run warm water over the bag, manipulating it with your hands until it’s returned to a slushie consistency. You can also pop it back into the blender for a moment.
What type of sugar for strawberry daiquiris?
Powdered sugar works best in this type of drink because it dissolves quickly and completely and mixes throughout easily.
Granulated sugar can be used, if you don’t have powdered. If using granulated sugar, you can make a simple syrup (1:1 water: sugar) to be sure the sugar dissolves fully.
What kind of alcohol for strawberry daiquiri recipe?
Traditionally the recipe calls for white rum. White rum is light bodied with a soft, sweet taste and is also seen in cocktails like the mojito and pina colada.
Leftovers and storage
How long do leftover daiquiris last?
You can keep the leftovers in a pitcher in the refrigerator for 3 – 4 days, or in the freezer indefinitely.
Can you freeze leftover daiquiri mix?
For sure, just pour melted remaining daiquiri mix into a freezer safe air-tight container. Alternatively, pour mix into an ice cube tray and use it to cool/flavor your white wine!
