Strawberries & Cream Daiquiris

These frozen strawberries and cream daiquiris are likely unlike any daiquiri you have encountered before. Made with fresh strawberries, sloshed with rum, peach schnapps and simple syrup and then layered with homemade vanilla whipped cream, these boozy, fruity treats are the perfect beverage to keep on hand for your summertime day-drinking escapades.





Last weekend I had the opportunity to pick my own strawberries and I took full, unbridled advantage of the situation. A short tractor ride brought me (and my mother-in-law and her fiance) to three acres of southern Pennsylvania strawberry fields prolifically populated by plump, ripe strawberries, heavy on their stems and prime for the picking.

I was beside myself with unanticipated excitement, utterly overwhelmed by the countless fat, juicy, warm-from-the sun berries. I harvested far too many of them, unable to stop myself or to even stand up for longer than a second before swooping back down to snatch up another perfect specimen or mutated giant (which I seemed to be partial to and was eager to show off to Zach as soon as I had the chance, beaming with pride at their eccentric beauty like the ringleader of a circus freak-show). I harvested until my fingers were stained and my crate was heavy; far, far too many strawberries for a household of two to reasonably be able to consume in a timely manner.
 

Strawberries & Cream Daiquiris

INGREDIENTS
Whipped cream
Daiquiri


INSTRUCTIONS
Whipped cream
  1. In medium sized bowl, with hand-mixer, whip together heavy cream, sugar, and vanilla extract until desired whipped consistency is reached. Set in fridge until daiquiri mix is ready.
Daiquiri
  1. In blender, pulse together strawberries, ice, rum, simple syrup and peach schnapps on high speed until smooth and completely blended.
  2. Remove whipped cream from fridge. Pour daiquiri mix into glass, filling approx. 1/3 of the way full, then spoon whipped cream on top of daiquiri and repeat until serving glass is full.
RECIPE NOTES
**I always make my own simple syrup. To do this, simply dissolve one part granulated sugar into one part water by heating the two ingredients in a saucepan on low-medium heat, stirring constantly until the sugar is dissolved, then removing from heat and allowing to cool completely before using in your mixed drinks
