I’m planning on moving to St. Louis at the end of the summer to be closer to Josh. I don’t plan on moving any of the liquor that I currently own. It is fragile and flammable and I just think it will be easier to use it up or throw it out. Fortunately, I don’t drink much and when I do drink at home it is usually beer, wine, or premixed cocktails. Still, I do have a bottle of cherry vodka, a bottle of rum, a small bottle of Calvados and a tiny bottle of Grand Marnier. I definitely think I’ll have the hardest time getting rid of the Calvados!
This weekend I decided to try a strawberry daiquiri as it could use up both the rum and some of the Grand Marnier. After looking at a bunch of recipes online this is the one I settled on.
8 or 9 strawberries hulled
A big handful of ice
1/2 cup white rum
1/4 cup Grand Marnier
Juice from 1/2 lime
I just threw everything into the blender and blended until smooth. I think this would have been better if I had crushed ice instead of the ice from the freezer because it didn’t blend very well.
This was the perfect drink on a lazy, hot summer afternoon. I paired it with some homemade pico de gallo and chips. The drink was good but extremely strong!
