We’re showing you just how easy it is to make a classic frozen daiquiri at home. What’cha waiting for? It’ll be ready in no time.
Daiquiris originally come from Cuba and are a family of cocktails that include rum, citrus juice and sweetener. They became popular in the 1940s and have evolved over the years to include many variations ranging from the classic, a banana daiquiri (our favorite), this strawberry daiquiri and even an avocado daiquiri.
Most of the time you’ll see them blended with fruit but we’re keeping it super simple with this classic frozen daiquiri. All you need is rum, lime juice, simple syrup and ice. Use a high-powered blender (like this one) and this perfect summer drink comes together in under 5 minutes. You’ll feel like you’re strolling along the streets of Havana in no time.
