About Peach Daiquiri
Delightfully sweet and with vibrant orange color, this peach daiquiri is the peach-infused version of this classic slushy drink that you’re going to want to sip all summer long.
What’s in a peach daiquiri
To start enjoying a deliciously cool daiquiri, you’ll need the following ingredients:
- Ice – A staple for all slushy drinks.
- Peaches – Because a peach daiquiri needs fresh peaches.
- Peach puree – Another shot of peach flavor but with a bonus of added sweetness.
- Malibu rum – A classic addition to any daiquiri for the coconut flavor.
- Pomegranate liqueur – Adds a slightly sweet and tart flavor.
- Lime juice – Another key part of a daiquiri, lime juice adds a bit of zing and heightens the flavor of the other ingredients.
- Grenadine – A dash of sweet, fruity flavor and a pop of color.
How many peaches do you need?
This recipe calls for two cups of chopped peaches which you should be able to get from three medium peaches.
Keep in mind that you’ll need more peaches if you want to use peach slices as garnish.
How many limes do you need?
This recipe calls for about 2 tablespoons lime juice. Squeezing one medium lime should give you enough juice to work with.
You can also use storebought lime juice for this recipe.
Do you have to use peach puree?
This recipe calls for peach puree, which is essentially blended peaches with some extra sweetener.
If you can’t find (or don’t want to use) peach puree, it can be substituted for an equal portion of peach preserves or peach jam.
Do you have to use Malibu rum?
Malibu rum is recommended for this recipe, but it’s not required. Any white rum would work well in this drink. A few of my favorites are:
- Bacardi – Sold almost anywhere and has a reasonable price point for the bottle size.
- Flor de Caña – Similar in price to Bacardi, but might be a tad harder to find.
- Cana Brava – A little more expensive than the previous two, but tends to show up on bartender-favorite lists.
How long is a peach daiquiri good for?
Once prepared, this daiquiri can be stored in one of two ways:
- In the refrigerator for up to 1-2 days. However, keep in mind that the ice will melt and the daiquiri will become thinner over time.
- In the freezer for up to one month. For best results, store the daiquiri in serving-sized portions and allow it to thaw some on the counter or in the refrigerator for a few hours.
Notes & tips for a peach daiquiri
- For a drink that doesn’t water down, you can substitute the four cups of ice and two cups of peaches for four cups of frozen peaches. However, you do miss out on the flavor of using fresh, ripe peaches.
- To keep your drink frosty, chill your glasses in the freezer beforehand.
- 50ml bottles of malibu rum can be a fun garnish for this drink. And when using the small bottles, you can either blend the rum in the drink OR prepare the drink without the rum and let your guests decide how much rum they’d like by encouraging them to pour from the small bottles. This gives your guests a choice on how strong they’d like their drink to be!
- If you’d like a virgin peach daiquiri, replace the rum and liqueur with peach juice.
- You’ll also need a trusty food processor for this recipe.
