While it’s unlikely that many of us will be jet-setting off to beachy destinations this winter, we can still sit back and enjoy a sunny little spirited slushie from the comfort of our own home (no SPF needed). The strawberry daiquiri is our go-to tiki drink—it’s a fruity spin on a classic daiquiri, which is a perfectly balanced combination of rum, sweet (simple syrup), and sour (lime juice). The most important part of a delicious daiquiri is the quality of your ingredients: use good rum and avoid, at all costs, store-bought sour mix. We also added frozen strawberries—they’re naturally sweet, refreshing, and allow you to skip the ice (which will water your drink down). FYI, if you love this cocktail, we think you’ll also go crazy for our frosé recipe.
