The strawberry daiquiri is the most popular variation on the classic rum daiquiri and an excellent cocktail for the warm days of summer. Whether it’s frozen or shaken, or the strawberries are fresh or frozen, a strawberry daiquiri made from scratch is sweet, refreshing, and irresistible. Our recipe offers easy versions of both frozen and shaken so you can pick whichever suits your preferences better.

Most often, the strawberry daiquiri is a blended cocktail served as a boozy, fresh fruit smoothie. The shaken cocktail is just as delicious and little easier to make because there’s no blender involved. No matter which version of this tropical drink you choose, the same ingredients are required: rum, lime juice, simple syrup, and strawberries.

Many takes on the strawberry daiquiri exist, but your personal spin is always welcomed. Mix it up by changing the style of rum, adding more fruit, or garnishing with some fresh mint or any other edible herb or flower.

For Best Results

Here are some suggestions to get the best daiquiri:

  • Properly wash and hull fresh berries before mixing them into the drink. Slicing the fruit speeds up the mashing process, too.
  • Use either fresh or frozen strawberries for this cocktail. Frozen fruit is a great choice for the blended version (use about 1/2 cup), while fresh strawberries are excellent for the shaken daiquiri.
  • For the shaken strawberry daiquiri, serve it “up” or over fresh ice, but be sure to start out with a chilled cocktail or margarita glass. Since fresh strawberries are recommended, you will find it best to fine strain this cocktail. To do so, simply place a fine-mesh strainer over your glass as you’re straining. This will keep most of the strawberry chunks and tiny seeds out of your drink.
  • Mix this drink with your favorite rum, any budget-friendly brand works well as the heavy fruit flavor means you don’t need the best rum to achieve a wonderful character.
  • If your frozen drink is too thin, add a little more ice and blend again. Too thick? Add a splash of liquid and blend.
