Squid Mixes: Frozen Daiquiri

A daiquiri combines lime juice, sugar and rum.  I got my recipe from Eric Felten's How's Your Drink?  I haven't had much luck with frozen drinks in the past but this one turned out nicely.  I expect I've been too skimpy on the ice historically - not a problem this time.

Lime juice and rum!  It'll be the perfect drink to serve Andrew and Susan if they ever come over.


  1. I've been playing with daiquiris lately!
    But not frozen ones.
    I've been comparing them with margaritas.
    I'm not actually sure which I prefer at this point.
    But, like I said, I haven't made a frozen one yet.

    So, you know, whenever you want to have me over for one. :P

    1. Tequila intrigues me. I haven't played around with it much yet but I'd like to. I'm eyeing it as a vodka substitute for bloody maries...

  2. My Aunt Vada used to make daiquiris when I was 19, visiting her. A sip was enough alcohol for me then, but my taste buds remember.

    And, anything with lime is good.

  3. My sister used to make daiquiris, but I never cared much for them. They were a high octane slushy that could easily take you beyond your limit.


    1. That is definitely the danger with such drinks: you forget you're drinking alcohol. It's another solid argument for whiskey: it competes better with mixers than other base liquors.
