Should I use fresh strawberries or frozen?
We love making these easy summer cocktails with fresh strawberries when it’s in season. In fact, it’s actually quite a nice idea to go strawberry picking and then whip up a batch of Virgin Daiquiris with your sun-kissed haul when you get home!
However, frozen strawberries work just as well when the fruit is not in season. In fact, the texture of the frozen berries can actually help to create that nice fluffy texture we all love in a frozen daiquiri.
Another way to go is to combine a bit of both – some fresh berries, some frozen. This combination yields a nice balance of flavor and texture that’s not too runny, and not too gritty.
If you ever find yourself in a situation where you don’t have any frozen or fresh strawberries on hand, you could also use strawberry jam in a pinch. Simply swap out the berries and sugar in the recipe above with a teaspoon of strawberry jam per drink. Be sure to shake it well – this addition does change the texture of the drink somewhat.
