    no ice in the recipe ?

    • Nathan Longley says

      Nope, just the frozen strawberries! No ice required.

  2. Louise says

    One awesome Drink.

  3. Annie says

    How would I make this non -alcoholic?

    • Nathan Longley says

      You could probably just leave out the rum, but it won’t taste the same. There are some alcohol free rum alternatives out there, but we have never tried them. Good luck!

  4. Kim says

    Serves only one cocktail? Am I reading this wrong?

    • Nathan Longley says

      You can move the slider to have amounts change for how many you want to make! I think you are right though that this makes 2, not one, otherwise that would be like a 24 ounce drink. Thanks for noticing! I updated it to 2.

  5. Susan says

    What kind of rum?

    • Nathan Longley says

      We used a white rum for this.
