Summer Strawberry Daiquiri

While are still at their best, and reasonably inexpensive in the supermarkets, using them in as many different ways as possible to make the most of the sweet, ripe fruit is a challenge.

As the temperatures sizzles in most parts of the country, these elegant, cool cocktails are a great way to start a beach or backyard party. Some cocktails use only white rum, but the addition of cointreau in this drink, gives an extra zing to the flavor which is a great blend with the sweetness of the strawberries - but make sure you buy plenty of strawberries because one is usually never enough!
