This Strawberry Daiquiri Recipe might just be my favorite frozen drink! I got home from Anna Maria Island yesterday and I can tell you that I’m already missing the fruity cocktails loaded up with seasonal ingredients and delicious liqueurs. But luckily I have a few tasty recipes I can make right here at home, just have to find a beach to enjoy them on!
I absolutely love a good Strawberry Daiquiri, but I used to only get them when I went out. Trying to make them at home with mixes just wasn’t the same as the sweet and slushy cocktails served up with colorful drink umbrellas. So I decided to build it from scratch, but that doesn’t mean it’s any harder to make and I can guarantee you this will taste way better!
There are a few key parts to getting the perfect daiquiri. First of all, you want to use confectioners’ sugar, it will blend better and give a more consistent sweetness, you could also use simple syrup. I also believe that lots of fresh strawberries are the key to getting the super fruity flavor we all know and love!
The addition of lemon and lime juices to this Strawberry Daiquiri Recipe gives it a little zing to match the sweetness of the strawberries and a splash of lemon-lime or club soda gives the drink just enough fizz. I use a light rum in this recipe to give it a smooth boozy finish as a dark or spiced rum would overpower the fruity flavors.

This really is the Best Strawberry Daiquiri recipe out there! It's a slushy blend of fresh strawberries, citrus, ice, and rum!
Add all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. Top with additional strawberries or citrus sliced for garnish.
For a non-alcoholic version, replace the rum with additional lemon-lime soda. Frozen strawberries can be good, but the strawberries might now be as strong. Club soda can be used in place of lemon-lime soda.
