This frozen strawberry daiquiri recipe is super tasty and could not be easier to make. If you have a blender and the supplies, the cocktail is ready in just minutes.
To make this drink easy to prepare, the daiquiri recipe features a mix – “Island Oasis Strawberry” – and this gets combined with crushed ice and rum for one of the simplest cocktails that your party guests will love.
Frozen cocktails are perfect for the summer weather. They are the ultimate way to spend summer days by the pool or at the beach with your toes buried in the sand.
They are sometimes called slushies and are generally made of flavored ice and some kind of drink, usually a soda. You can make them as a mocktail, with no alcohol, or add some spirits, as we do with rum, to make a frozen drink that beats the summer heat.
I love frozen cocktail recipes. There is nothing like a yummy concoction poured over crushed ice to make you feel as though you are in the tropics.
