The Strawberry Daiquiri, that summertime favorite, evokes poolside vacations with its fruity freeze. It's typically served frozen after a spin in a blender, but if you prefer yours shaken, more in the style of a traditional Daiquiri, you can first muddle the strawberries with simple syrup in a cocktail shaker and then follow the instructions for making a classic Daiquiri.
