I think this is my first cocktail recipe. Well, does this Piña Colada Milkshake count? I see that as more of a boozy dessert than a cocktail.
THIS however, is something you could drink by the poolside at a resort with your best girlfriends when you wanna get a little buzzed. Not that I know anything about that ;).
What is a Daiquiri?
A daiquiri is a cocktail made with rum, lime juice and a sweetener like sugar or honey.
Back when the drink was first created, it would always be served in a glass filled with ice. Over the ice, a teaspoon of sugar along with a squeeze of fresh lime juice would be added. A few ounces of rum was then poured on top before the drink was stirred with a spoon.
Later on, the daiquiri would be made in one of those cocktail shakers with shaved ice instead. We won’t be using either of those methods today since this is an easy homemade recipe.
So grab your blender and let’s get started!
Cherry Raspberry Daiquiri Ingredients
This recipe uses the same ingredients as a traditional daiquiri, but these are cherry and raspberry flavoured so we’ll be adding both of those as well.
Let’s break down each ingredient:
- Granulated sugar + water: To sweeten the daiquiri, we’ll be creating a simple syrup.
- Cherries: We’ll be using both fresh and frozen cherries, to eliminate the need for ice. If cherry season is over when you make this, use all pre-packaged frozen cherries.
- Raspberries: fresh or frozen is fine.
- Rum: I used white rum. You can use 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup depending on how strong (and thick) you want the drink to be.
- Lime Juice: A classic daiquiri ingredient. You’ll only need 1/3 cup of fresh lime juice.
How to Make Frozen Daiquiris
Start by making the simple syrup. Combine equal parts of sugar and water in a small saucepan. People usually use 1 cup of each, but we only need about 2-4 Tablespoons of the syrup, so we’ll only be using 1/2 cup of each. Store the rest in an airtight jar in the refrigerator.
Let the syrup cool to room temperature, then make the daiquiris. You can do this the night before.
To make the actual daiquiris, pit 4 cups of fresh cherries and add 3 cups to a ziplock bag and 1 cup to another. Refrigerate the 1 cup and freeze the 3 cups overnight. Of course, if cherries aren’t available to you, just use 4 cups of packaged frozen cherries.
Now comes the easy part. Throw everything into a blender! All of the cherries, raspberries (recipe says 16, you can add more or less), 2-4 tablespoons of simple syrup (depending on how sweet you want it), rum and lime juice. Blend it all up and serve!
I used 3/4 cup of rum and started getting dizzy after a couple of sips, but that’s because I barely drink alcohol in the first place. You can add as little as 1/4 cup or don’t even bother measuring and pour it in until your heart tells you when.
