Take a trip to the tropics with these tasty daiquiri recipes!
Just about everyone is familiar with the daiquiri (usually the strawberry daiquiri) whether they drink it or not.
Just like there is more than one version of the margarita, there are also several different versions of the daiquiri.
While the strawberry and classic daiquiris are probably the most famous daiquiri recipes, there are also peach daiquiris, banana daiquiris, and even frozen cucumber basil daiquiris!
In fact, there are a lot more daiquiri recipes than just the 10 I’ve listed here, and you could easily create your own versions at home.
These are an excellent place to start, though.
1. Classic Daiquiri
Since all of the other daiquiri recipes on this list stem from this basic recipe, it only makes sense to start here with the classic daiquiri.
One of the things that makes the classic daiquiri such a popular drink is that it’s so simple to make. You’ll need three things: rum, lime juice, and simple syrup.
As long as you have those, you can whip up a tart and tangy daiquiri in 5 minutes flat.
Now, let’s look at a few other ways to adjust the classic daiquiri to suit your specific tastes.
2. Autumn Daiquiri
Bring your favorite daiquiri drink along with you into the fall with the five-ingredient autumn daiquiri.
All you’ll need to make it is rum, lime juice, pineapple juice, spiced simple syrup, and a cinnamon stick garnish.
The recipe recommends Mount Gay Eclipse Rum, but any high-quality rum will work.
To make the spiced simple syrup, you’ll combine equal parts sugar and water, a cinnamon stick, cloves, and a vanilla bean.
It gives you some of the best fall flavors in one convenient syrup, and it’ll certainly add a nice depth to your autumn daiquiri.
3. Frozen Strawberry Daiquiri
Frozen daiquiris, particularly frozen strawberry daiquiris, became super popular in the late-90s and early 2000s, but they’ve been around much longer than that.
They’re icy and cold, making them ideal for summer.
Plus, they’re the perfect balance of sweetness and tartness, so they’re incredibly tasty. Finally, they’re stronger than you’d think.
Although you can’t really taste the rum in there, it’s there, and it packs quite a punch, so there aren’t many people who don’t enjoy a good strawberry daiquiri.
With this recipe, you can make your own.
4. Banana Daiquiri
Of course, strawberry daiquiris aren’t the only daiquiris that you can enjoy frozen.
Frozen banana daiquiris are every bit as good, and they’re better if you prefer bananas to strawberries.
This drink uses a few more ingredients than most of the other daiquiri recipes on the list, but it still just takes 5 minutes to make.
As long as you have bananas, coconut milk, lime juice, sugar, white rum, and ice, you can have it ready to go in no time.
Add a lime twist and a maraschino cherry as garnishes.
It’s a sweet, tropical drink that couldn’t be more delicious.
5. Hemingway Daiquiri
This five-ingredient daiquiri takes its name from the famous writer Ernest Hemingway, who – if you didn’t know – was a huge fan of daiquiris after his time in Cuba.
This particular daiquiri combines light rum, maraschino liqueur, freshly squeezed grapefruit and lime juices, and a fourth ounce of simple syrup.
It’s sweet, tart, and has just a hint of bitterness from the grapefruit juice.
If you like your drinks to have a multitude of flavors, this daiquiri might be right for you.
6. The Jettison Daiquiri Recipe
If you’re fond of slightly bitter drinks, give the Jettison daiquiri a try.
It includes Panama Pacific 3 Years, Rhum Neisson, lime juice, grapefruit Oleo Syrup, and dashes of Bob’s Summer Bitters.
I know those ingredients are very specific, but I’ve tried to make this drink with other brands of liquor, and it never turns out exactly right.
It’s always good, of course, but never the same as it is if you use these specified ingredients.
So, if you’re trying it for the first time, stick strictly to the recipe for the best experience.
7. Pineapple Daiquiri
This gorgeous, golden-yellow drink is another excellent option if you’re in the mood for something tropical, fruity, and fun.
Like most drinks on this list, it takes only 5 minutes to pull together, and all you’ll need are frozen chunks of pineapple, light rum, lime juice, and simple syrup.
It’s tart and tangy, but the frozen pineapple adds a fresh sweetness, as well.
A friend of mine adds a bit of coconut milk to her pineapple daiquiris for even more island flair.
Personally, I find it a bit too sweet with the extra coconut milk, so try that at your own risk.
8. Peach Daiquiris
Some people want drinks that’ll mentally transport them to Hawaii, Jamaica, or another island paradise.
This one, though, will have you dreaming of Georgia with all its peachy goodness.
This drink isn’t precisely a “frozen” daiquiri since you’ll use fresh peaches to get the sweetest, most robust flavor.
Because you’ll add two cups of ice, though, it’s rather slushy.
That makes it a fantastic drink to have while sitting by the pool on a hot summer’s day. Just don’t let its cool sweetness fool you.
There’s a hefty amount of rum in there, so it’s stronger than it looks.
9. Frozen Mango Daiquiri
I’m taking you back to the islands again with this frozen mango daiquiri recipe.
It’s a super simple recipe that uses only four ingredients: rum, mangoes, ice, and vodka.
The recipe says you can use fresh or frozen mangoes, but just like the peach daiquiris above, you lose some of the mango flavor if you use frozen mangoes.
If you live somewhere where you can get them, and they’re in season, I highly encourage you to stick to fresh ones instead.
They’ll give you a much more vibrant taste.
Of course, if that’s not an option, frozen mangoes are better than no mangoes at all.
10. Frozen Cucumber Basil Daiquiri
If the Grinch (or Sam I Am after his revelation) drank daiquiris, this gorgeous green daiquiri would be what he would drink.
Unlike most of the options on the list, this one isn’t sweet. Instead, it has a crisp, fresh flavor that combines cucumbers, basil, and lime juice.
If you’re looking for a light drink that’ll make your mouth feel clean after drinking it, you’ll love the frozen cucumber basil daiquiri.
