Say goodbye to summer with this glass of sweet temptation! A frozen peach and mango daiquiri and seeing as fruits are loaded with vitamins, this can be counted as a healthy cocktail and included in your diet – am I right!? This delightful and dangerously addictive cocktail combines fresh summer fruits, simple syrup, and rum.
Can you believe it! Summer is almost behind us! Time really does fly. As much as I enjoyed the scorching heat, I can barely wait for fall, and what better way to welcome those fresh autumnal days and watch the leaves drop with a delicious daiquiri in hand! The flavors are sure to have you reminiscing about those hazy summer nights.
This cocktail is easy to put together with Six ingredients. If you’ve ever tried the classic daiquiri, then you know how fresh the contrasting sweet and sour piquancy leaves your palate.
This is NOT a smoothie; I repeat, this is not a smoothie.
Just looking out for ya!
I know once you take a sip, there will be no stopping you.
Drink with absolute caution.
The fun part about making this cocktail at home is that you can adjust to taste. Throw a bunch of fruit in there and a splash of rum. If you don’t want to walk sideways or slow steps, go easy on the rum, but either way, you will tantalize your taste buds. Speaking of rum, have you tried this fiery papaya rum cocktail? It’s an adventure in itself.
USING FRESH FRUITS FOR COCKTAILS
I love to use fresh fruits to add a little twist to the classic daiquiri. To make your signature cocktail, use your favorite fresh fruit that is in season and readily available.
I’ve made this cocktail on several occasions with fresh strawberries, bananas, watermelons, cantaloupes, pears, and cherries.
I find it is essential to freeze the fruits if you are going for the frozen daiquiri instead of using ice cubes. In my opinion, ice cubes water down the drink and compromise the full flavors.
So, freeze your choice’s fresh fruit for two hours or so beforehand and then blend with the rest of the ingredients.
Wash the fruit, peel(optional), and cut. Line a single layer on a baking sheet and freeze for about two hours or overnight.
Transfer the frozen fruit into a ziplock bag and store it for future use.
