Happy Canada Day Weekend!
How should you celebrate the long weekend? By enjoying local strawberries and a blended alcoholic beverage of course!
This quick post will inspire you to grab your blender, score some fresh strawberries from the market and use the ice in your freezer.
Strawberry Daiquiri –Serves Two
Tip: To hull a strawberry, use a sharp knife and pierce the top underneath the leaves. Circle around the centre of the strawberry making a complete round using the sharp tip of the knife. This should remove both the white centre and the leaves.
Two shots white rum
Juice of one lime
Juice of one lemon
1 Tbsp simple syrup (equal parts sugar and water)
Handful of strawberries (approx. eight medium strawberries)
Scoop of ice
Place all ingredients into a blender. Process until smooth and thick, pour into glasses and serve immediately.
