It's been hot - It's daiquiri time!

We have seen some extreme temperatures here in the Seattle area over the past few days and when it's hot like this we like to have strawberry daiquiris on hand for guests that stop by. A friend gave us this recipe awhile back.

She only gave us the ingredients not the specific amounts of each item, so it's a bit of a guessing game or tasting game with this recipe! Experiment with it, it is a delicious treat for a hot summer evening.

In a plastic tub (with a lid) combine:


Frozen strawberries



Sugar to taste

Stir the ingredients together then secure the lid on the tub and put it in the freezer. Leave it in the freezer for at least a full day. Pull the tub out of the freezer 1/2 hour before you want to serve it, stir it up and it will be the perfect slushy consistency.

If you don't use it all, put the lid back on and stick it back in the freezer for the next time.



  1. Sounds fabulous! I hope you stay cool - sounds like you will with these yummy daiquiris!


  2. What time shall I be over?!!! This sounds great and so refreshing!

  3. Mmmm....such a great drink for those hot summer nights (and days!) Need some company??
