classic cocktails: strawberry daiquiri cocktail

classic cocktails: strawberry daiquiri cocktailStrawberry daiquiris, the not frozen variety since summer is over…however, I did make an amazing frozen strawberry daiquiri this summer using a favourite recipe from a friend…maybe I’ll have to share that one next…even if it is off season :)

classic cocktails: strawberry daiquiri cocktailI had some strawberry schnapps leftover from a sangria recipe this summer, so I turned the classic daiquiri into a classic strawberry daiquiri with minimal effort. Totally delicious and a fraction of the work of muddling fruit (plus I’m not crazy about the gritty texture of muddled fruit in a non-frozen drink). After a couple cocktails I got too confident in my lime juicing and stopped measuring… I quickly learned that you have to be cautious with the lime, it was easy to get too sour of a cocktail if you aren’t careful.

Ingredients:

  • 4 oz. rum
  • 2 oz. strawberry schnapps
  • 2 oz. fresh lime juice (approx. 2 limes)
  • 1 tsp. powdered sugar
  • ice
  • strawberries for garnish (frozen if you have them!)

Directions:

  1. Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice, add all ingredients except for the frozen strawberries and shake vigorously
  2. Strain into martini glasses and garnish with frozen strawberries to keep it cool
  3. Enjoy!
