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.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 ounces aged Puerto Rican or Jamaican rum
  • 3/4 ounce lime juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1 ounce rich simple syrup
  • 4-5 large strawberries
  • 6 ice cubes
  • Garnish: edible orchid

Steps

  1. Add all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.

  2. Pour into a Margarita glass or wine goblet.

  3. Garnish with an edible orchid.
