There is something about a fruity alcoholic beverage that is both refreshing and relaxing. A daiquiri is what comes to mind when most people think of lounging on a tropical island.
Standard daiquiris are made with rum, sugar, and lime juice, but adding strawberries takes them up a notch. Whether you use fresh or frozen, strawberries are the ultimate fruity complement for a traditional daiquiri recipe.
Though daiquiris typically contain rum as the base spirit, many people prefer them with vodka. Swapping the rum for vodka doesn’t compromise flavor in many recipes, so it is an easy flavor change.
Both rum and vodka taste great with a strawberry daiquiri, but if you are looking for strawberry daiquiris with vodka, we have what you have been looking for.
