Julie's Famous Daiquiris

Over the 4th of July weekend, Dusty's family came down to visit. We had delicious steaks, creamy pasta, the best creme brulee of my life, pizza and.....daiquiris. Oh my goodness did we have daiquiris! I don't think I drank any water on the 4th, I think I just consumed daiquiris all day, and it was fabulous.

As a birthday gift, Dusty's mom and dad got us the worlds most incredible blender of all time....
The Ninja.
Never heard of it?
Well, it is only the greatest blender of all time! It has 6 blades going all the way up so that nothing is missed. It's incredible, that's what it is! And it makes the best daiquiris too.

Back in Dusty's hometown, his moms daiquiris are famous. Julie told me that she makes these bad boys 5 gallons at a time....Holy Cow! We only made about 2 batches (about 16 cups) and it didn't last very long between all of us, so I can see why she makes so much of it at a time.

If you need something to cool you off on a hot day, then you have gotta try these! The alcohol isn't at all potent in the drink. I'm an extreme light-weight when it comes to drinks (you have no idea) and I didn't feel a thing after having a couple glasses full of daiquiris. Trust me, this will become your go-to daiquiri recipe!

Here is what you are going to need {makes 8 cups = 1 full blender}:
-1 pound of Frozen Strawberries
-6 oz Frozen Limeade Concentrate
-3/4 cup Bacardi Rum
-3/4 cup Raspberry Lemonade (found in the refrigerated juice section of the grocery store)
-1 to 1-1/2 cups Ice
-Whipped Cream, for garnish (optional)

Blend first 4 ingredients together in your blender. Then add ice and blend until all the giant ice chunks are gone. Top your daiquiri off with a dollop of whipped cream.

These are so easy to make and delicious!
P.S. They keep really well in the freezer. So you can make a batch and then have some whenever you feel like it!
