More about what’s in a Strawberry Banana Daiquiri

A Hemingway Cuban Daiquiri includes the staple combination of double rum to lime juice with a little simple syrup for silky sweetness. For a creamy Strawberry Banana Daiquiri version, all you need is a good quality rum, a handful of fresh in-season strawberries, banana, and a splash of orange juice. To sweeten, add a dash of simple syrup or sugar. Nothing spells summer quite like this frozen drink!

How to make a Strawberry Banana Daiquiri like a pro

This pretty-in-pink drink is so simple to make and swift too! Just add all your Strawberry Banana Daiquiri ingredients into a blender with a handful of ice and whizz until smooth. Spoon every last drop into a highball or hurricane glass. Add a strawberry to the rim of your glass for extra glamor.

What is the best rum for a Strawberry Banana Daiquiri?

Sometimes, too much choice can make a decision really tough. Don’t get overwhelmed with all the rums on offer. You just need a subtle sweet white rum to suit a fruity Daiquiri. Try a Jamaican Wray and Nephew white rum or Caribbean Maison La Mauny Rum, both with a tasty molasses base.
