In New Orleans, the city where the cocktail was invented, and where “go cups” are freely used in bars so that you can walk around the streets without having to waste a precious drop, the Daiquiri is king.
How many places do you know that have Drive-Thru Daiquiri stores? Well, we have them here in New Orleans, and here is your chance to make our favorite one.
WARNING: This drink should come with its own bail bond 800 number. It is said that after a nice tall one of these, you should give your car keys to someone else. We disagree. You’d better give them to someone else BEFORE you have one of these, because after the first one, more are on their way, and then you’ll be in no condition to think about giving your keys away. Actually, you’ll be more likely to start giving away your hotel room keys. So be careful.
12 ounces frozen limeade concentrate
1 cup strawberries
16 fl. oz. rum
Blend the limeade, strawberries, rum, and ice together until the mixture is smooth. Then serve in fancy glasses and garnish with strawberries. Perfect for a nice summer day out by the pool.
