Ingredients for strawberry daiquiri on a wooden table.
  • Frozen strawberries: Frozen strawberries are perfect for making daiquiris because they add sweetness and a bright red color to the drink. Because the strawberries are frozen you do not need to add ice cubes. You can use fresh strawberries instead; however, you will then need to add a handful of ice cubes to thicken it up.
  • White rum: White rum is the traditional choice for daiquiris. It has a light flavor and doesn’t overpower the other ingredients. I used Bacardi rum, but any white rum will work.
  • Fresh lime juice: Lime juice adds a tangy, citrusy flavor to the daiquiri that helps balance out the sweetness of the strawberries. You can use bottled lime juice, but fresh squeezed lime juice will give your daiquiri a brighter, more vibrant flavor.
  • Simple syrup: I made homemade simple syrup by dissolving equal parts sugar and water over medium heat. It adds sweetness to the cocktail without the gritty texture that you might get with granulated sugar. If you prefer, you can substitute with honey, agave nectar, or any other sweetener of your choice.
  • Optional garnishes: Fresh strawberries and lime wedges are a classic garnish for a strawberry daiquiri. They add a pop of color and make your drink look extra fancy. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can also try adding drink umbrellas.

πŸ’­ Expert Tips

🧾 Recipe FAQs

Can I use a different kind of rum besides Bacardi?

Yes, you can use any kind of light rum you prefer in the daiquiri.

Can I make the daiquiri ahead of time?

It’s best to serve the daiquiri immediately after making it. If you need to make it ahead of time, blend without ice and refrigerate. Add ice and blend again just before serving.

Can I make the daiquiri without a blender?

While a blender is the easiest way to make a daiquiri, you can also use a food processor. Alternatively, you can make a shaken daiquiri by muddling the strawberries with a fork (defrost them first or use fresh strawberries) and mixing all ingredients together in a shaker or jar.

How can I make a non-alcoholic version of the Bacardi Strawberry Daiquiri?

For a non-alcoholic drink, simply omit the white rum and replace it with real fruit juice of your choice. You can still enjoy the refreshing and fruity taste while staying alcohol-free.
