Strawberry Daiquiri

Strawberry Daiquiri

Recipe courtesy The Hawthorne, Boston

This rosy pink drink is a great way to use the first strawberries of the season. In the hotter months, The Hawthorne serves up a frosty frozen version, too.

  • 4–5 strawberries plus 1 for garnish
  • 2 ounces dark rum, like Plantation Grande Réserve 5 Years
  • 1 ounce lime juice
  • 1 ounce simple syrup

In a cocktail shaker, muddle strawberries. Add remaining ingredients and ice. Shake well, and strain into a rocks glass over a large piece of ice. Garnish with a whole strawberry.
