About Raspberry Daiquiri
A frozen daiquiri can be perfect for any occasion, but they really hit the spot on a warm weather day.
Between the sweet blended fruit, the white rum, and a zesty dash of lime, drinks like this raspberry daiquiri can quickly become a refreshing combination that helps keep you cool.
What alcohol is in a daiquiri?
For the daiquiri purist, rum is the chosen alcohol for this drink. It’s the combination of rum and lime that create the trademark for a daiquiri, so without rum, it’s “technically” not a daiquiri.
However, if you’re craving a fruity drink and don’t have any rum on hand, any clear and unflavored alcohol (like vodka) should do the trick in a pinch.
What type of rum should you use?
I’m always hesitant to give brand recommendations on alcohol, but in this case, there are a few “go-to” rums you can seek out for a traditional daiquiri, such as:
- 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.
Can you make this daiquiri without alcohol?
Yes, you certainly can! It’s not technically a daiquiri at that point, but there’s nothing stopping you from still enjoying the tasty combination of raspberries and lime juice.
To replace the rum, you can either substitute for equal parts water or add a dash of juice or simple syrup.
Notes & tips for this daiquiri recipe
- This recipe uses frozen fruit instead of ice so the drink doesn’t get watered down. If you need the drink to be thicker, add more frozen fruit.
- If you’d like a less boozy daiquiri, you can reduce the amount of alcohol by half.
- You’ll also need a trusty food processor for this recipe.
