A hot and humid night in Hong Kong. The temperature on our balcony at 7PM was 30C and 80% humidity. This called for more than a glass of wine.
Frozen Berry Daiquiri:
5 dl. ice
125g-200g frozen berries (softened 15 minutes)
.5 dl sugar (to taste, depending on the berries and how tart you enjoy it)
Juice of 1/2 lime
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1 dl. dark rum (add more if you like!)
In a blender, combine ice, sugar and berries. Pour in juices and rum. Blend until smooth (like slush). Rub the rim of a glass with a lime, dip in sugar or salt. Pour daiquiri into glass.
The Culinary Chase’s note: The berries I used came mixed together in the package and consisted of strawberry, blackberry, blueberry and raspberry. Make sure to press these berries through a strainer before adding to the blender otherwise you’ll end up with a lot of seeds in your drink. I also used superfine sugar which dissolves easier than granulated sugar. You can substitute any frozen berry you wish and if you feel its too thick, you can always add some fruit juice. Have fun experimenting with other tropical fruits. Of course, you can always omit the rum for those who like mocktails.
