Sippin’ Daiquiris in the Sun
At the height of summer, the lure of drinking cocktails in the sun can be overwhelming! When temperatures reach their peak, we think the daiquiri is the perfect choice, especially when frozen, helping to keep you cool and hydrated. The following recipes are all simple to make and delicious to drink, with a core ingredients list of rum and lime juice!
If you want to keep things really simple, turn your traditional daiquiri into a frozen one and keep those sweat beads at bay! Made with lime juice, rum and sugar syrup, these staple ingredients are blended with ice until slushy and irresistible, before being poured into a chilled cocktail glass. Just like the classic drink, but colder!
This sugary sweet drink is perfect for those that like their cocktails fruity and cold! Made with lemon juice, sugar syrup and six fresh raspberries added to the traditional rum and lime juice and blended with crushed ice, this cocktail looks as good as it tastes.
A daiquiri with a twist! This drink retains the core ingredients of rum and lime juice, but also incorporates lime zest, Cointreau and maple syrup, making for an unusual daiquiri that cocktail enthusiasts will adore! Blend with so much ice that the final drink is almost solid and enjoy on the beach under a palm tree (or in your back garden if the beach is too far away!)
Probably everyone’s favourite daiquiri variation, the strawberry flavour also tastes amazing when chilled. Choose a white variety of rum as your base spirit and add lime juice, lemon juice, lots of fresh strawberries, strawberry liqueur and sugar. Blend with plenty of ice and then pour into a chilled highball glass. This daiquiri tastes just like summer should!
Make a cocktail for the kids or just drink this when it is too early to start on the rum! Made with plenty of fresh strawberries, sugar and lime juice, this fabulous fruity concoction tastes like a cross between a cocktail and a smoothie, making it the perfect virgin option for garden parties and social gatherings. Don’t forget to blend with lots and lots of ice on days when it’s too hot to be indoors.
Make one, or make them all, but don’t let the summer of 2019 pass without discovering the pleasure of an ice-cold daiquiri, giving you tropical vibes without having to travel abroad!
