So, wanna know How to Make a Daiquiri? Check out the easy steps below!
What goes in a frozen daiquiri?
- Frozen pineapple – you can buy frozen, pre-cut pineapple in the frozen food section at the grocery store. Be sure to look for no-sugar added on the label. You can also use fresh pineapple – just be sure to freeze before hand. This will keep your drink extra cold and creamy.
- Fresh squeezed lime juice – resist the urge to buy bottled lime juice. Fresh-squeezed is so much more flavorful. So, go to the produce section and go grab a few limes.
- Coconut cream – you can find coconut cream (NOT coconut milk, or coconut water) in the International Foods section of the grocery store. You may also be able to find it where drink mixes are sold.
- Coconut rum – we tested standard white rum and coconut rum in this drink. Hands-down, the coconut rum was the runaway favorite of the two. We used Malibu rum, however, feel free to use any brand you prefer.
- Simple syrup – you actually make simple syrup by dissolving 1 part water into 1 part granulated sugar. Place the water and sugar into a sauce pan and bring to a low boil. Stir often to ensure the sugar properly dissolves. Once it comes to a low boil, remove from heat and let the syrup cool to room temperature. Simple syrup is a common ingredient in many cocktails – I like to keep a mason jar of this in my fridge for drinks like my Blueberry Coconut Mojitos and my Frosted Lemonade. I also have a great recipe for Mango Mojitos over at Real Housemoms that’s amazing!
- Ice – your freezer likely makes this for you. If it doesn’t, you probably need this drink more than any of us right now.
