Frozen Strawberry Pineapple Daiquiri

Happy Friday, you guys! Which means it’s high time for a happy hour!

My husband and I were joking around that being in quarantine feels a little like trying to telecommute while on a cruise ship. The places you can go are really limited and you need a lot of prep to disembark, and it’s really tempting to make a day out of wearing pajamas and sipping cocktails.

We started establishing some rules pretty early on. For one, getting up meant at least combing the hair and putting on something resembling real clothes. The rules were loose there – we wear a lot of sweats and t-shirts and hoodies these days. For another, we would get our fresh air quota each day, either working in the garden, playing in the back yard with our son, or going running. And finally, the five o’clock rule applies.

So five o’clock has been an informal house happy hour. I go whip up something fun for Scott and me, and little man gets apple juice. We try to keep him off the juice because of the sugar involved, but sometimes you just need a little treat.

The last time Scott went to the store, he scored an enormous box of really fresh strawberries. We like having strawberries in the fridge, but this time he could only buy them in size huge. So we’ve been figuring out creative ways to enjoy them! We have a few favorites already posted here – my very berry smoothies and rustic strawberry shortcake for example – and we’re going to post a few more, like my strawberry tiramisu and sugar dipped strawberries, one of my favorite treats.

And, of course, we had to bring strawberry daiquiris to the table.

A daiquiri is a classic rum sour drink that’s pretty much just sugar, rum, and lime juice. There have been a lot of variations made on that theme – banana, Hemingway, even avocado – but probably one of the better known ones is the strawberry daiquiri. And it’s definitely one of our favorites for warm spring evenings heading toward summer – or evenings we wish were warm as we head toward summer. It’s been chilly in the DMV lately!

I’ve cut back the sugar in our daiquiri and replaced it with a mixture of crushed pineapple and pineapple juice {which, naturally, you can buy canned} for a little bit fruitier taste. Hopefully it helps you daydream a little tropical break from the ordinary, as it has helped us.

    • There’s nothing like a fresh strawberry right from the yard! Just hoping all of us get to ours before the squirrels and the birds do!
