  • ¾ ounce blue curaçao
  • ¾ ounce lime juice

  • Orange wheel for garnish

It’s been said that this ocean daiquiri tastes like the ocean. No, that doesn’t mean sea salt is in the flavoring. Next time you’re mixing up drinks for a beach day, this is a great option.

3. Raspberry Daiquiri

Who doesn’t love raspberry? Of all the berry flavors, raspberry is in a class of its own. It steps up the frozen daiquiri to a new level:

  • 2 ounces light rum
  • ½ cup fresh raspberries
  • 1 cup of cracked ice
  • 1½ ounces fresh lime juice
  • 1½ ounces simple syrup

The lime garnish pairs well with the raspberry flavor to make this one of the more interesting frozen daiquiri options. It’s especially well-suited to be a dessert drink.

2. Watermelon Ginger Daiquiri

Who would have thought watermelon and ginger would be a great mix? This unique daiquiri shows just how much you can do with some interesting flavor combinations:

1. Hemingway Daiquiri

We saved the top spot for the classic (beyond the actual classic daiquiri). Ernest Hemingway is known for his literary contributions to the world, most notably with titles like The Sun Also Rises, For Whom the Bell Tolls, and The Old Man and the Sea. His daiquiri contribution is equally delightful for an afternoon of enjoyment:

  • 3 ounces dark rum
  • 1½ ounces freshly squeezed grapefruit juice
  • ¾ ounce maraschino liqueur
  • 1 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
  • ½ ounce simple syrup
  • 1 cup crushed ice

If you want to drink like Hemingway did, this is the daiquiri for you. Just be careful with it–it’s delicious, but as hearty as Hemingway’s written works.

Frequently Asked Questions About Frozen Daiquiris

While you’re blending frozen daiquiris, you might find yourself wondering about the composition of the drink and how it fits with chilled cocktail drinks. We took a dive into some frequently asked questions about frozen daiquiris and were pleasantly surprised to find a variety of questions. Enjoy the answers while you sit back and sip on a frozen daiquiri of your choice.

Is a Margarita or Daiquiri Sweeter?

Whether a margarita or a daiquiri is sweeter is mainly dependent on the flavor. Margaritas typically have a bit more of a sour flavor, with the kick of the types of tequila being the main driver behind the flavor. However, a watermelon margarita recipe is exceptionally sweet. Daiquiris, however, are almost always a little bit sweet due to the robust flavor of rum. 

What Is the Difference Between a Daiquiri and a Mojito? 

The main difference between a daiquiri and a mojito is that a daiquiri has lemon juice, sugar, and crushed ice in addition to rum. On the other side, a mojito is rum alongside fizzy water, mint, and ice cubes. You could craft a mix between the two with a mint daiquiri. 

What Is In Bacardi Rum? 

Bacardi rum is made of molasses from sugarcane, yeast, and water. The Bacardi process involves fermentation, distillation, aging, filtering, and blending. The craftsmanship involved in each step of that process is what sets Bacardi up as the notable rum that it is. Bacardi has over half a million barrels of rum waiting to be blended while they age to perfection. 

What Country Is the Best Rum From? 

The answer to which country produces the best rum is truly a matter of personal preference. It can depend on your flavor preferences, your drink choices, or even brand loyalty. Some common choices for the best country for rum are Barbados, Cuba, and Jamaica. 

What Is the Best Flavor Daiquiri?

The best flavor of a daiquiri is another matter of opinion. Some folks lean towards the classic mix or the Hemingway twist. For others, a watermelon mix hits the spot just right. For mixologists, mixing up new flavors can be the trick to finding the best option–at least for that night of mixing drinks.
