I had this big basket of strawberries that we picked up from a local farm and although the kids love them, I wanted to try something different than the regular things.
So, I came up with my version of Strawberry Daiquiri which both my daughter and I enjoyed very much in this hot day!
You will need:
2 cups strawberries
1/2 cup sugar ( you can put more if you like!)
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
2 cups finely crushed ice
- fresh strawberries, lemon zest and pieces, straws, little umbrellas etc.
1. Wash thoroughly the strawberries and remove the leaves.
2. Place whole in a large bowl and add the sugar on top. Stir once and leave them overnight ( or for a couple of hours) in the refrigerator.
3. The next day combine the strawberries, lemon juice and ice in a blender. Blend until it has the consistency of a slushy. Serve immediately in martini glasses!
*Note: You can rub the edge of the glasses with lemon and dip it in sugar for a greater effect.
