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.
- 3 (1/3 cup) blood oranges, juiced
- 1½ cup strawberries, frozen
- ½ tbsp. lime juice
- 1 oz. white rum
- 1 tsp. sugar
- 1 cup ice cubes
- Add all ingredients to a blender and process until smooth.
I hope you have a great Memorial Weekend! I have the day off from work, but I imagine I’ll still do some work in between baking.
Great use of the blood oranges Jen. I had a fun time at the bowl with you.
