Frozen Strawberry Daiquiri

from The Craft of the Cocktail

  • 1.5 ounces White Rum
  • .5 ounce Maraschino Liqueur
  • 4 to 6 medium-size, cleaned and cut up Strawberry
  • 1.5 ounces Simple Syrup
  • 1 ounce Lime Juice
  • Strawberry (Garnish)

Blend all the ingredients with a handful of ice and strain into a special frozen-drink glass or into a medium-size wineglass. Garnish with the fresh whole strawberry by making a cut on the bottom of the strawberry and perching it on the rim of the glass. See the Hemingway Daiquiri and you will note that frozen drinks require a lot more sweetening than shaken drinks because of all the additional water from the ice.

Fresh-fruit versions of the frozen daiquiri are fun to prepare when seasonal fruit is available. Here is one for fresh strawberries.
