Last week I promised the recipe for the delicious Strawberry Pineapple Daiquiri that Justin and I made with our Grilled Chicken with Tomato Salsa, so here it is! Strawberry daiquiris have always been one of my favorite drinks, whether alcoholic or not.
No matter what I’m drinking, I always like it to be fruity and made with rum. I never remember the names of drinks, but those are my requests. When I was in college, we would go to a place in Downtown Orlando called Chillers. It was a bar with a wall of slushie machines, and all of the drinks were frozen. We didn’t go out drinking often, usually just for a friend’s birthday, but that was my favorite place.
Since the boys stayed the night at Justin’s parent’s house, we decided to try making our own homemade strawberry daiquiri drink. I’ve only ever made it with a mix before. So we started throwing a few things together to see what we could make.
Initially, we were going for a regular strawberry daiquiri using frozen and fresh berries with a few other things, and of course, rum. I tried a sip, and it was pretty good, but still needed a bit more flavor. The drink wasn’t sweet enough for me. So I decided to add some pineapple juice and that made the drink delicious. So now, we have our recipe for a Strawberry Pineapple Daiquiri.
Step by Step
Using frozen strawberries makes the drink thick and gives it the same texture as a frozen mixed drink. We threw a few fresh strawberries in since they have more flavor than the frozen ones. Place the strawberries in the pitcher of a blender.
Add the sugar, lime juice, rum, and pineapple simple syrup. Fill it with the water and blend the drink.
After blending, if your drink is too thin, add a few more frozen berries or a few cubes of ice and blend again. If it’s too thick, add a bit more water or pineapple juice. Blend again until you have the consistency desired.
