How-To Make a Classic Strawberry Daiquiri

By Edited Apr 25, 2016 0 1

What was originally a lightly sweetened Cuban creation for a hot sunny day has turned into an overly sweetened American abomination! When people think of a Daiquiri they immediately think of an ultra sweet strawberry blended rum cocktail. The original Daiquiri actually was strictly lime based and never even contained a hint of strawberry. The standard in terms of Daiquiri's these days is Strawberry, so what we are going to create with this recipe is a classic Daiquiri with strawberries how they were originally were intended to be drank!

Classic Strawberry Daquiri
What You Will Need:
Cocktail Shaker
Fine cocktail strainer
6 Fresh Strawberries
2oz White Rum
1/2 oz Fresh Lime Juice
1/4 oz Simple Syrup
1 Sugar Rimmed martini glass

First, peel the skin off your strawberries and crush them in the bottom of a cocktail shaker.

Once nicely crushed, add in your rum, lime juice and simple syrup.

Next, stir the mixture vigorously to try and release as much strawberry juice as possible.

Fill your cocktail shaker with ice and shake it as hard as you can. This not only chills the beverage but further helps to release more of the strawberry juices.

use a very fine strainer to remove all the pulp from the drink and pour into a sugar rimmed martini glass. Be patient, as the liquid will be slow to pour out due to all the ice and pulp. The drink will still be cloudy but not full of strawberry pulp.

Sit back and enjoy!
