These scrumptious Frozen Fresh Berry Daiquiris take just minutes to make and will cool you down on the most sultry summer day!
Summer is the perfect time for a slushy cocktail…especially when you have sweet juicy berries at your disposal. The kind folks at Blue Chair Bay Rum sent me a bottle of their premium white rum so I just had to whip up a cool beverage. The fragrant strawberries and luscious raspberries parked in my fridge enticed me into making these frozen fresh berry daiquiris. In college, we just dumped frozen berries, powdered sugar, and rum into a blender. It was time for a more sophisticated recipe.
Frozen Fresh Berry Daiquiris
This is such a simple recipe. You still toss all the ingredients into the blender, but measurements are key! Puree till you reach slushy perfection. Then taste and adjust the ingredients to your palate’s preference. Add more sugar if you like a sweet cocktail or more lime juice if you prefer a bigger hit of citrus. Just make sure you use ripe, sweet berries for the best flavor. Feel free to substitute frozen fruit in the offseason; those results will be terrific, too.
