Fro-Zen Daiquiri

I saw this in the book Cool Cocktails from Cool Places by Bill Tikos, aka the Coolhunter, and thought it was a great drink for the summer, and would be especially good for the heatwave that parts of the east coast are experiencing at the moment. The past few days in San Diego have been "June gloom", as it is known locally, but the weekend promises to be warmer with less cloud, so it would be good here as well.

The Fro-Zen uses summer fruits, and is the signature cocktail of the trendy Zen Cafe in Venice, Italy. This cafe takes its inspiration from Japan, and adheres strictly to the philosophies of Feng Shui, and with all this peace and tranquility going on, it is the perfect place to enjoy the Fro-Zen Daiquiri.

  • 1 ounce Rum
  • 1/3 ounce Kahlua
  • 1/3 ounce Sugar Syrup
  • 1/2 a lime, squeezed
  • 1 1/2 ounce fresh strawberries and blueberries
  1. Blend the rum, Kahlua, sugar syrup, lime juice and fruit in a blender with plenty of crushed ice.
  2. Pour into a cocktail glass and garnish with a strawberry.
