Since it’s warmer out & I’m wanting to bake less- we have been working on creating some new & refreshing beverages for the summer. We bought a cocktail shaker/bartender kit & some things to start getting creative with drinks. I will probably be putting the baked goods on hold as much as possible & focusing on more refreshing goodies to share with you here. I mean- who really wants to be in a hot kitchen when they could be out enjoying the beauty of summer right??!! Now that we live somewhere that is actually pleasant during the summer months- I certainly want to be outside enjoying it as much as I can.
Some in our family prefer the adult versions of these while others like the mocktail recipe version. So I am including both here for you today so that you can make these however you prefer. These would be great at your next summer gathering.
A twist on a traditional strawberry daiquiri- plus the virgin cocktail recipe too so everyone can enjoy this pretty little drink.
Red White & Blue Daiquiri
- 1/4 cup lime juice
- 1 tsp granulated sugar
- 1.5 oz clear rum OR seltzer water for mocktail
- 1/2 cup fine ice
- 1/8 cup blueberry syrup
- 2/3 cup blueberries
- 2/3 cup strawberries
Add all ingredients to cocktail shaker & give it a good shake for 30-45 seconds.
Drizzle additional blueberry syrup into bottom of daiquiri glass.
Pour daiquiri into glasses- top with additional fruit if desired.
So refreshing & the kids love the fruity drink in the mocktail version too.
