Strawberry Daiquiri is an iconic Cuban cocktail that blends strawberries with rum for a classy, yet cheerful pink drink.
Originating from Cuba, the Strawberry Daiquiri is an iconic pink drink that has graced many movie sets.

The best Strawberry Daiquiris are made with frozen strawberries instead of ice for a delicious slushy consistency that does not dilute the flavour.
