Introduction: Strawberry Daiquiris

Picture of Strawberry Daiquiris

This particular cocktail marks a damaging day... 

We bought two litres of rum for no reason then decided to go get loads of fruit, mainly strawberries and proceeded to get massively drunk... 

We mixed far more rum than reasonable in to it, around two shots a glass... 

These aren't iced daiquiris, we forwent ice instead making them extra syrupy - as a note, daiquiris don't need to be iced to be daiquiris, that's iced daiquiris...

In the blender we roughed it but:

 - fill jug with cut strawberries
 - Throw rum at it, beginning around four and ending in just pouring in till we got worried
 - Top up with sugar syrup (recipe below) 
 - Blend
 - Sieve in to glass (Wouldn't be as necessary with better strawberries) 

There were more bits and pieces of niceness in there... 

The sugar syrup is fairly simple, fill a bottle about two thirds with boiling water, pour caster sugar in until it wont dissolve easily, add your preferred essence, vanilla in our case. Chuck in the freezer to cool quick, or let cool until room temp. 

To frost the glasses, rinse in water and stick them in the freezer upright. 

I must say this was wildly entertaining, though massively damaging to my liver and stomach (fruit and I don't get on particularly well)

Thank you for sacrificing your personal health to advance the knowledge of the group! Very generous and self-less!

I will continue on my bold endeavours to further the collective knowledge by assaulting my body...

I've had daiquiris before and thought they were great! Is it really just strawberries, rum and sugar syrup? That sounds crazy simple!

At it's most basic - really it should have lime juice, be made with frosting sugar instead, if it's just for daiquiris, simply make your syrup with lime in it as well, to be honest the stuff will keep for ages and is a great way to make cocktails easily, it acts as a pretty good safety net...

agree whole heartily!
