The basic recipe for a daiquiri is also similar to grog which sailors drank back in the 1740’s – they probably didn’t drink strawberry grog though! May have helped their scurvy if they had!

Daiquiri Strawberry

4.5 cl (9 parts) White rum
2.5 cl (5 parts) lime juice
1.5 cl (3 parts) Simple syrup
strawberry puree

Straight up or if you prefer crushed ice

  1. I’m not a drinker but I do like reading the “recipes”. My son made me “nuclear waste” once (that’s what he called it). It was good but it looked and smelled like windshielf washer fluid! I like your illustrations! 🙂
