I highly recommend reading all the way through for any tips or substitute suggestions, to ensure that you have any specialized ingredients and equipment required and that you understand the steps and timings involved.
This fresh and fruity homemade daiquiri recipe eliminates the need for sugary prepared mixes full of artificial colors and flavors. With just a few ingredients and your blender, you’ll be sipping a delicious frozen drink before you know it!
Many cocktails add sweetness by adding simple syrup which is a 1:1 ratio of sugar and water. But if you are watching your sugar intake and still want to enjoy your favorite cocktails you can make a sugar-free syrup by using monk fruit sweetener. It is considered a 1:1 replacement for sugar. Which is exactly the same ratio when making it with regular sugar.
Monk fruit is a no calorie sweetener which has zero impact on your blood sugar levels. It is derived from the juice of the monk fruit, and has a course sugar-like consistency that is light beige in color.
Daiquiri is a family of cocktails whose main ingredients are rum, citrus juice (typically lime juice), and sugar or other sweeteners. The basic recipe for a daiquiri is also similar to the grog British sailors drank aboard ship from the 1780s as a means of preventing scurvy. – Wikipedia

Frozen Strawberry Daiquiri Variations
I like to try and give variations on the cocktails shared on The Purple Pumpkin Blog, like how to turn the cocktail into a mocktail so that non-drinkers (and kids if suitable) can enjoy the drink too!
Virgin Frozen Strawberry Daiquiri Mocktail (Non-Alcoholic)
So that non-drinkers can enjoy a frozen Strawberry Daiquiri there are a few easy tweaks to make!
Following the recipe card below, simply omit the rum and replace with one-quarter cup water.
You can also mimic the rum flavor by using spiced brown sugar syrup, replacing the alcohols in the recipe card with the syrups. I recommend adding the syrups to taste as they may add a sweetness that you may not necessarily get from alcoholic liquors.
For non-drinking adults who still want the rum flavor you could experiment with a non-alcoholic alternative:
White Cane Spirit from Lyre’s – “This unique spirit has been impossibly crafted to capture the essence of a gently aged white rum with flavours that are distinct and contemporary.” Their website has international versions too, including the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and Europe, so they’re worth checking out for non-alcoholic alternatives!
Other Flavor Daiquiris to Try
- Hemingway Daiquiri – shake 4oz white rum, juice of two limes and half a grapefruit, six drops of maraschino liqueur (without sugar), and pour over ice.
- Frozen Banana Daiquiri – regular daiquiri with half a banana.
- Frozen Avocado Daiquiri – regular daiquiri with half a ripe avocado.
- Mulata Daiquiri – 2 oz rum mixed with ½ oz either coffee or chocolate liqueur, ½ oz fresh lime juice, and ¼ oz sugar syrup.
This cocktail recipe is intended for adults of the legal drinking age in your country of residence. Please drink responsibly. Do not drink and drive.

For the Sugar-Free Simple Syrup:

- If using, prepare the sugar-free simple syrup by combining the powdered monkfruit sweetener and water in a small pan. Stir to combine and heat for 3-4 minutes, until the sweetener dissolves completely. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
- Place the strawberries, lime juice, rum, and one-quarter cup simple syrup (of your choice) into a blender and blend until smooth.
- While the blender is still running, add the ice a little at a time until thoroughly combined. Turn blender off and remove lid. Taste and add additional simple syrup, if desired, and blend for another 30 seconds to combine.
- To serve, pour into glasses and serve immediately garnished with lime wheels and/or whole strawberries. Enjoy!
