Strawberry Daiquiri


For fear of sounding like the boy (girl) who cried wolf over here, this cocktail is so freaking delicious. You have to have one! I know I say that sometimes, but trust me. Like now. Or tomorrow, since you need to infuse the rum.

Strawberry Daiquiris get a bad rap. This ain't no frozen crap (though if I were lounging by a pool in Palm Springs, you could definitely offer me one of those, too, and I'd enjoy it!). And it's super easy. And the color! Gorgeous. Hello, summer. So good to see you a month early.

Hope you all have the best weekend. My husband, Willy, and a whole bunch of my pals are running the Brooklyn Half Marathon tomorrow. I'll be drinking on of these afterwards to soothe my throat that'll be sore from screaming.



2 oz strawberry infused rum *
1 oz fresh lime juice
1/2 oz simple syrup or 1/4 oz gum syrup (We used gum syrup to give it more body)
1 egg white (optional)

* To make strawberry infused rum, combine strawberries and light rum in a non reactive container. We used a 1 lb. container of strawberries for a 750 ml bottle of rum. Let sit for 24 hours. Strain.

Combine ingredients in shaker with ice. Shake well (45 seconds would work) and strain into a coupe. Garnish with a lime wheel.
