There are many variations of the daiquiri cocktail, including both frozen and various fruit varieties. And because it’s often served as a cheap frozen, fruity cocktail at pool parties, people seem to think it’s not very good. But when made properly with quality ingredients, daiquiris are delicious – even the frozen, fruity variations!
Essentially, the classic daiquiri is a rum sour and all its variations can be considered the same.
To make fruit daiquiris, it’s as simple as muddling or blending the fruit into the mix and replacing the simple syrup with a fruit liqueur or fruit syrup. To make frozen variations, blend the mix with a scoop of crushed ice.
