Strawberry Daiquiri Cocktail

Strawberry Daiquiri Cocktail 

A Strawberry Daiquiri Cocktail is  just pure summer loving, strawberries and rum with a hint of citrus. What’s not to love 

Do you fancy a Strawberry Daiquiri Kiss?

I do 🙂

Daiquiri Kisses

These daiquiri’s aren’t  too sweet and you can really taste the beautiful lime – delicious.

If you want to make it proper (seriously) strawberry flavoured,  just use 1 lime instead of 2 and add in 30ml of strawberry liqueur or syrup or some strawberry cordial.

 

Strawberries in drinks 

on I love strawberries do you? 

Especially English ones in the summer – I like to eat the seasons (or maybe drink them)

According to Wiki 

These potent little packages protect your heart, increase HDL (good) cholesterol, lower your blood pressure, and guard against cancer.

Packed with vitamins, fiber, and particularly high levels of antioxidants known as polyphenols, strawberries are a sodium-free, fat-free, cholesterol-free, low-calorie food

What is a Daiquiri Cocktail? 

The official definition of a Daiquiri is:

‘An iced drink containing rum, lime juice, and syrup or sugar’

Daiquiri is a family of cocktails whose main ingredients are rum, citrus juice, and sugar or other sweetener.

The daiquiri is one of the six basic drinks listed in David A. Embury’s classic The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks, which also lists some variations.Wikipedia

So this is just perfect

So mix, shake, kick your shoes off and enjoy
