I know what you might be thinking. “Elle, this looks a lot like last year’s Valentine’s Day drink.” Well…yeah, you’re not wrong…but I promise it’s not the same drink. Listen this week is not only Valentine’s Day but Fat Tuesday and my Birthday. I may have forgotten what my previous Valentine’s Day cocktail looked like in the midst of all the recipes I have rolling around in my head. Ring the Game of Thrones “shame” bell if you must. Another thing similar is my mantra that Valentine’s Day drink recipes should be easy. Personally, I don’t feel like it’s the time to bust out the 9 ingredient cocktails. You’re already trying to sear heart shaped steaks and questioning the airiness levels to a mousse. That’s where this Strawberry Daiquiri comes in.
This recipe is a classic cocktail and well loved for a reason. It’s an easy and low ingredient drink that pairs with most of your typical Valentine’s Day foods. Though it’s classic it’s still easily impressive because most first impressions to the daiquiri world are the frozen ones topped with whip cream. While were a big fan of those, this one is a little bit more grown up. Throw it into a BBQ and it fits right in. Throw it into a classy date night and it will shine too. It is why we call them classics isn’t it?
The Best Strawberry Daiquiri Recipe
The Best Strawberry Daiquiri you will have consists of 4 ingredients shaken and strained into classic coupe glasses. Perfect for a Valentine's Day Drink or Summer Cocktail!
- 4 ounces White Rum
- 2 Large Strawberries or 4 Little Strawberries - steamless
- 1.5 ounces Lime Juice
- 1 ounce Simple Syrup
Into a cocktail shaker muddle together the simple syrup and strawberries until well combined. Add in the lime juice and white rum. Fill the shaker with ice to the liquid line. Shake for 15 seconds. Fine strain* into two chilled coupe glasses. Serve alone or with a strawberry garnish.
*A sifter would also work if you do not have a fine mesh cocktail strainer. You can also use a regular cocktail strainer but you will get some of the strawberry seeds.
You may need to tip the cocktail shaker back and forth to clear the holes from the strawberry skins. This will help you get the rest of the cocktail out of the shaker.
