Blood Orange and Strawberry Daiquiri

Hi Everyone,

Happy Memorial Day!  Today I am sharing with you a quick, seasonal drink that will sure to be a hit with you and your friends, plus perfect for celebrating Memorial Day.  This is my Blood Orange and Strawberry Daiquiri.  This weekend, my friend Marlene from Nosh My Way and I went to Berkeley to go shopping at the Berkeley Bowl.  When I was shopping around the fabulous produce section, I saw Blood Oranges.  They are grown in California and pretty much close to being out of season.  I have a hard time finding them at my local grocery store, so I had to buy a few.  Since it is a holiday weekend I thought I would treat myself to a little drink.

I think blood oranges are so cool looking!  I love the beautiful color of them.  Have you ever had a blood orange?  They are sweet and have a hint of raspberry flavor to them.  I read online you should store them in the refrigerator.  Don’t leave them on the counter or in a bowl like oranges.

To make my drink, I added juice from 3 blood oranges, 1 1/2 cups of frozen strawberries, lime, sugar and Bacardi White Rum.  I blended away and pour my drink into my glass and topped with whip cream.  Personally I think a daiquiri is not a daiquiri without whip cream.
