If you love a delicious frozen mango daiquiri, but don’t want all the refined sugar that most of the store-bought mixes contain, you’ve come to the right place. This easy mango daiquiri uses simple ingredients and can be blended in moments at home.
In this post I’ll show you how to blend a daiquiri, what types of liquor to choose, and what tools you’ll need to make a daiquiri.
What do I need to make a mango daiquiri?
- Frozen mango – the easiest option is to purchase frozen mango chunks from the frozen foods department. Get them from Target here! You can also peel, chop and freeze fresh mango.
- Mango nectar – I purchased the Goya brand mango nectar, which is readily available in most Hispanic foods sections.
- Rum – White rum is best for a daiquiri. I used Bacardi, but you can also use Malibu if you’re looking for a coconut flavored daiquiri. Feel free to choose any white rum that best fits your budget.
- Cointreau – Cointreau is an orange liqueur, which brings a flavorful balance to the drink.
- Lime juice – I like to use fresh-squeezed lime juice, but you can also use bottled lime juice.
- Ice – to attain an icy, thick consistency for any frozen cocktail, you’ll need a good amount of ice.
- Blender – a good quality blender is needed to make a frozen, blended daiquiri. I use and love my Blendtec Designer Series Blender.
- Citrus juicer – If you choose to use fresh-squeezed lime juice, you’ll need a citrus juicer. This hand-held citrus juicer from Target is fantastic!
- Hurricane or Margarita glasses – while not necessary, these glasses are the traditional vessel for a frozen daiquiri.

How do I make a frozen daiquiri?
To a blender jar add the frozen mango, ice, mango nectar, rum, Cointreau and lime juice. Place the lid onto the blender jar, making sure it is tight and secure. Blend on medium-high for 30-45 seconds, or until all ingredients are pureed to a smooth consistency.
Pour into glasses and enjoy the cocktail right away while cold.
This is the Blender I use almost DAILY! Everything from smoothies, to cocktails, to waffle and muffin batter and even nut butter, this ultrapowerful blender creates an amazing puree every time. It’s very durable and made to last!
Once the daiquiri is blended, pour it into your preferred glasses and top with a garnish, if you like. Enjoy this delicious cocktail right away while cold.
Garnishes for your daiquiri; feel free to get creative if you want to pretty-up your daiquiri with a garnish. I chose sliced fresh mango and a maraschino cherry, but you could also use lime slices, a twist of lime or a simple, festive paper umbrella.
Ingredient Substitutions and Recommendations:
- Cointreau – if you don’t have Cointreau available, the next best option would be Triple Sec.
- Fresh-Squeezed Lime Juice – if you don’t have fresh limes on hand, you can also substitute bottled lime juice. This can be found in the juice section of your supermarket.
- Mango Nectar – this may be hard to come by for some. If you cannot find mango nectar, you can use orange juice as a substitute.
Frequently asked questions about making daiquiri’s at home:
A daiquiri is traditionally made with white rum. A great option would be Bacardi or Captain Morgan, however, there are many on the market today. Choose the best quality of white rum that fits your budget.
A mango daiquiri is made of frozen mango, mango nectar, white rum, Cointreau (or Triple Sec), lime juice and ice.
Margaritas and daiquiris are very similar. When made frozen (blended) margaritas and daiquiris both have fruit, lime juice, Cointreau (or Triple Sec), and ice. A margarita is made with tequila and a daiquiri is made with rum.
The most traditional glass for a daiquiri is a hurricane or margarita glass that is u0022upu0022. These stemmed glasses keep the heat from your hands off the glass, and will help prevent your drink from melting quickly.
