I have a yummy Summer cocktail recipe to share with you. This fruity daiquiri would be wonderful for a backyard barbecue, a poolside Tiki party, or summer family gathering.
You can enjoy a tropical island flavor in your backyard. Try his cool refreshing daiquiri recipe, made with canned fruits that are great sources of vitamins A and C. They’re a fabulous way to get refreshed on a warm spring or hot summer day. This recipe can be served with or without alcohol so it’s fun for the whole family (and family friendly parties).
Strawberry-Peach or Banana- Peach Daiquiri
Ingredients:5 ounces (1/2 cup, plus 2 tablespoons) canned peaches in heavy syrup (from a 15-ounce can)*
2 fresh limes
3 ounces (1/4 cup, plus 2 tablespoons) premium light rum
3 large, fresh strawberries or 1/2 medium, fresh banana
2 tablespoons sugar
Whipped cream for garnish
Do ahead: In a blender, purée the entire can of peaches. Set peach purée aside in a separate bowl/pitcher. Rinse blender bowl and return to base.
To make 2 cocktail drinks: Juice two limes, and pour juice into blender. Add rum, 5 ounces canned peach purée, strawberries and sugar. Fill serving glass with ice, add ice to blender and repeat, adding another glass of ice. Blend until smooth. Pour into cocktail glasses. Garnish with whipped cream.
Tip: Try substituting white cranberry juice in the place of rum for a non-alcoholic treat for the kids to enjoy.
Serving glass: 14-ounce cocktail glass (daiquiri/poco grande).
These look cool and delicious for a hot summer night. I love the non-alcoholic kiddie option to make them family friendly.
