Watermelon Strawberry Daquiri

This is my July beverage of choice .  It  has been a hot summer, without much rain, so smoothies and iced beverages are going fast around here.

 We recently  purchased a commercial blender with a 1.5 horse power motor, that will grind up any frozen fruit you put into it , in no time .  If you don’t have a commercial blender that’s ok , it just takes a little longer to blend that’s all.  

John and I  found ourselves with some left over watermelon one day,  and wanted to do something easy  with it , so this is what I did.  You can omit the alcohol if you like.  

~Watermelon Strawberry Daquiri~ 

Ingredients

  • 2 cups (500mL) watermelon , chopped
  • 2 cups(500mL) ice
  • 2 cups(500mL) whole frozen strawberries
  • splash of lime juice
  • 1 tbsp(30mL) sweetener of choice or sweeten to taste
  • 3 oz. (88mL) good amber rum( make sure it is 100% imported rum )

Preparation

Put watermelon into blender and  blend on low until liquid .   Add strawberries a few at a time along with the lime juice, sweetener, and rum.  Blend on low while adding ice a little at a time.  The consistency should be slushy and thick  .

Put into chilled glasses with a sprig of mint , pop in a straw and you are set to go .

  1. THIS! LOOKS DELICIOUS! I wonder if I can count this as my my food for the pot luck I’m going to. What did you use as the sweetener? And If we Want to increase the amount of alcohol can we just add more ice to maintain the consistency?

    • Thanks for your comment Devo, not sure if daquiris count as a food, but technically they do have fruit in them , so I say yes! you can use any sweetener of your choice. Sugar, Stevia, Honey, Splenda. It really is up to you . You may have to do this daquiri in two batches if you are increasing the volume. Have fun at your pot luck :)
