While a strawberry daiquiri isn’t the original daiquiri, it’s become the most well-known form of the drink and probably the most popular. It is so easy to put together, serves up beautifully AND tastes refreshingly delicious. The smooth consistency and refreshing fruity flavor make the delightful cocktail irresistible!

The classic daiquiri is shaken and the only fruit it contains is lime juice. With a smoothie-like consistency, this variation lets the blender does the work for you. The addition of fresh or frozen strawberries adds a refreshing and balancing flavor that will keep you coming back for more.

Strawberry Daiquiri Recipe

This yummy drink is made with just a few simple ingredients and a blender. That’s it! You will need approximately two ounces of rum, one ounce each of simple syrup (this homemade recipe is best! It’s simple to make and can be used for a million different recipes), and lime juice. Then grab a few handfuls of strawberries. Using frozen strawberries eliminates the need for ice, and prevents the drink from getting watered down. If using fresh strawberries, you may want some ice!

How To Make a Strawberry Daiquiri

  • Add the rum, lime juice, simple syrup, strawberries, and ice to the blender.
  • Blend until smooth
  • Pour into a glass and enjoy!

How to Serve

Since this is an icy cold drink, it’s best to serve immediately. A martini glass, daiquiri glass, or coupe glass is perfect for serving. Garnish with a fresh strawberry and slice of lime.

    I have found using frozen strawberries in place of the ice cubes make a more flavorful drink and I top it with canned whipped cream.
