This Strawberry Daiquiri Recipe might just be my favorite frozen drink! When I was growing up, it always felt like a special occasion when I was allowed to order a virgin strawberry daiquiri when we were out at a restaurant for dinner.
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!
I love that I can make this fruity frozen drink right here at home, just have to find a beach to enjoy them on!

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 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.
What Are The Ingredients For A Strawberry Daiquiri?
This recipe uses ingredients that are easily accessible, nothing too crazy or fancy! For this recipe you’ll need:
- Powdered Sugar

What’s The Best Rum For A Strawberry Daiquiri?
I’ve had daiquiris made with all different kinds of rums, but in my opinion, using a white rum will yield the best results, especially when making this drink at home.
Bacardi Superior is a very common choice as it’s widely available, but it can add a sharpness to the drink that some may not enjoy. If you can find Flor de Caña rum near you, this is what I would personally recommend using.
How Do You Make A Strawberry Daiquiri?
Making this frozen cocktail at home is actually really easy! You’ll need a blender, this one is my favorite, then just combine all of the ingredients in the blender and blend until slushie. You can garnish with fresh strawberries and citrus slices.
If you want to make a virgin strawberry daiquiri, simply replace the rum with additional lemon-lime soda.
