What Alcohol is in Strawberry Daiquiris?
The alcohol of choice in a strawberry daiquiri is white or light rum. The light rum has a sweet, toasted sugar taste, and will not overpower the strawberry and fruit flavors.
What is the Difference Between a Margarita and a Daiquiri?
A margarita flavor is more about the citrus, usually lime or lemon. The margarita alcohol is typically tequila. A daiquiri flavor is more focused on the “other” fruit flavor, like strawberry. The daiquiri usually has rum in it.
What Kind of Rum Goes in a Strawberry Daiquiri?
A white or light rum is the rum of choice. The darker rums will have a heavier, less sweet flavor. They could overpower the light fruity flavor of the strawberries.
Do Frozen Daiquiris Go Bad?
A frozen daiquiri can be kept in the freezer for about a month. Because the alcohol in the frozen daiquiri will prevent it from freezing hard (in a solid block), you can take your daiquiri out of the freezer, stir, and enjoy!
What is the Origin of a Daiquiri?
Rumor has it that, during the Spanish-American War, an American mining engineer created and named the drink. The engineer was working in a mine in Cuba. In an afterhours party, he ran out of the makings for a favorite cocktail. Rum was plentiful in Cuba, so the engineer reportedly mixed lime, sugar and rum and called it a daiquiri. Daiquiri Beach is near Santiago de Cuba.

It depends on the brand, and where you buy the mix. If you’re shopping at a store that doesn’t sell alcoholic beverages, then the mix is probably not going to contain alcohol. However, if you are shopping in a liquor store, the alcohol may be included in the mix. I would recommend that you read the ingredient list on your mix’s package.

Customize Your Frozen Fresh Strawberry Daiquiris by Adding Optional Ingredients
- If none of your strawberries are really pretty, use a slice of lime for garnish.
- If you grocer doesn’t have any fresh strawberries, you can use frozen strawberries.
- Instead of the frozen limeade mix, you can use a simple syrup made from equal parts sugar and water. Put the sugar and water in a small pan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Stir until the sugar is dissolved. Let the mixture cool, then add fresh lime juice.
- If you don’t like the flavor that fresh limes add, substitute lemon juice.
- If you have a favorite alcohol, substitute it for the rum. It will give a different flavor to your daiquiris…but they ARE your daiquiris!
- Add a little lime or lemon zest to your Frozen Fresh Strawberry Daiquiri.
- You can also add a small amount of cointreau or orange liqueur to your frozen drink.
- You might try a little cream and vanilla (or a scoop of ice cream) to change up your frozen strawberry daiquiri.
- If your frozen strawberry daiquiri needs a little boost of strawberry flavor, you can add some strawberry liqueur.
