Strawberry Daiquiri

To make a classic Cuban daiquiri you really only need three ingredients – a little something sweet, a little something sour, and some good rum. Variations usually include fruit juice or fresh fruit blended into the cocktail, like the strawberry daiquiri pictured above. This recipe takes a classic Cuban daiquiri up a notch with maraschino cherry liqueur and a garnish of brandied cherries. Try this elegant, no-blender-required cocktail for your next date night or get together. 


  • 2 oz white rum
  • 1 oz freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1/2 oz simple syrup
  • 1/4 oz Maraschino cherry liqueur
  • Garnish: thin slice of lime and brandied cherries


  1. Combine all ingredients in a shaker filled with ice. Shake well, until chilled.
  2. Strain into a chilled coupe glass and garnish with a thin slice of lime and a brandied cherry.
