Virgin strawberry daiquiri recipe

Now that summer has arrived in South Africa, everyone might use a cold drink to beat the heat. You want the kids to have something pleasant to drink, but not everyone like them spiked. You may all relax and enjoy the day with this virgin strawberry daiquiri, a refreshing beverage that has no alcoholic contents. Traditionally, a tall glass full of cracked ice was used to serve daiquiris. One or two limes were squeezed over a teaspoon of sugar that had been placed over ice. These days, you can either use a shaker or a blender, depending on the number of people you’re serving.

Virgin strawberry daiquiri tips

Try not to devour all the strawberries before they make it into the punch, and use only the freshest ingredients. Your daiquiri should include as much ice and fruit as possible. The fruit used in this beverage is incredibly nutritious, and it does not include any sugar substitutes. One cup of sugar and one cup of water are all that’s needed to produce simple syrup. Just mix them together in a saucepan over medium heat and stir until the sugar dissolves. As long as you keep it in the fridge, it will last for a month. Make a second batch using at least 1-2 shots of white rum per serving if you like a stronger libation.

This summer, indulge in a refreshing fruity beverage. Try this virgin strawberry daiquiri and have fun with the kids without worrying about getting drunk.
