How to Make a Frozen Strawberry Daiquiri at Home

Craving a strawberry daiquiri? This frozen rum-based cocktail is the perfect refresher on a hot summer’s day, and is sure to impress friends and family alike. A daiquiri is a staple in any cocktail making repertoire, and this Cuban-inspired popular favourite first found fame in New York clubs in 1902, before it exploded in popularity in the 1940s.

Our recipe for the iconic strawberry daiquiri will taste best in the summer months when strawberries are in season, but don’t forget you can easily swap out strawberries for raspberries, pineapple or mango and get extra creative with your fruit flavours all year round.

Making this cocktail for the whole family? Ditch the white rum and use apple juice instead to keep it alcohol-free if your kids want to join in too!

Serves 2


  • 250g Frozen Strawberries
  • 60g Fresh Strawberries, Plus Extra to Garnish*
  • 30ml Sugar Syrup*
  • 120ml White Rum Note: this provides each person with a double shot of rum, so reduce this down if you want your cocktail a little less boozy!
  • 90ml of Freshly Squeezed Lime Juice
  • Mint To Garnish

*Whilst you can use fresh strawberries and ice if you don’t have any frozen strawberries in the freezer, we think the blend of frozen strawberries and fresh works best. This addition of fresh strawberries stops the cocktail from turning into a sorbet texture.

**You can buy sugar syrup (or simple syrup) from the supermarket, or make your own at home! To make your own, add equal parts white sugar and water to a pan and simmer on the hob until the sugar dissolves. You can cool this syrup off and keep it in a jar until needed. Worth making a batch for multiple cocktail occasions.


A powerful blender is the secret to a perfect frozen daiquiri so that your strawberries or other fruit combination breaks down into that refreshing slushy texture. Our 700W smoothie blender is totally up to the job!

1. Place all ingredients into your blender and blitz until your strawberries are smooth.

2. Taste test and make adjustments according to flavour. If you need more sweetness, top up with syrup. Likewise if you’re craving a sour kick, squeeze in more lime. 

3. Pour into glasses and garnish with fresh strawberries and mint.

4. Enjoy!
