Summer drinks #1

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.

The drink went well with my homemade pico and some chips

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!
