How to Make Strawberry Daiquiri
The art of mixology is trending, and there are many who prefer making their own cocktails at home when they host parties or to relax after a long day. There are many drinks that are very easy to make and taste delicious, but there are always a few that top the list of the most popular. Among them are the mojito, the margarita, the gin tonic and the daiquiri.
Besides the classic recipes for these popular cocktails, there are many others in which you add a fruit that provides a special and distinct flavor. Undoubtedly, the most popular fruit is the strawberry. In this oneHOWTO article we'll give you a simple recipe so you know how to make strawberry daiquiri.
The first thing to do before you prepare the strawberry daiquiri is to dress up the glass. Put a little grenadine - grenade juice - in a bowl and a little sugar on a plate.
Now pick the glass that you want to use and wet the rim of the glass in grenadine and then in sugar so it sticks. We'll use the grenadine to give the sugar a touch of red and for a better presentation of the cocktail.
Now, we can start making the homemade strawberry daiquiri. To do this, take a bowl suitable to use a mixer on. Or, if you have food processor, you can use that container too. Add the juice from half a lemon.
Then cut off the ends of the strawberries and put them in. Add half a tablespoon of sugar. If you want to get an even sweeter taste, you can increase the amount of sugar. Another effective option is to replace one or two strawberries for some strawberry syrup.
Select the white rum you like best, the Havana Club kind, and pour a little into the mixture. It's best to only add a shot, but this is to taste, so if you want to taste the rum more, add some more.
Now, either add some crushed ice or some strawberry ice. Both ingredients work, because the goal is to get the cocktail-like slush that is characteristic of the daiquiri.
If you use the strawberry ice, remember that the strawberry flavor will be more intense, so we recommend that you reduce the amount of strawberries.
Now that you have all the ingredients in the bowl, mix them until you have the desired texture. Once blended, serve in the glass and bottoms up!
This is how you make strawberry daiquiri. If you want, you can cut a strawberry down the middle without actually cutting it all the way through and put it on the rim of the glass as garnish. If you want to try something different, why not go for frozen peach daiquiri?
