Simple Strawberry Daiquiris

Donal Skehan

400g strawberries

300ml white rum

300ml pressed apple juice

1 tbsp caster sugar

In my opinion, nothing is more impressive than a good cocktail at a dinner party to get a great night started. Although strawberry daiquiris may not be the most manly of cocktails, they are my drink of choice and this is my recipe for foolproof, super-tasty daiquiris. This recipe does come with a warning, however: once you learn it, you may find yourself making them all too often! I use frozen strawberries because it is so convenient to have a few packets stocked up in the freezer. Using frozen berries means you don't need to add ice, and you can use any other frozen berries in this mix, so experiment. Serves six.

1 Place the strawberries in a food processor, pour in the apple juice and rum and sprinkle the sugar in. Blitz for about 30 seconds until you get a smooth slushy mixture.

2Taste a teaspoonful as you may need to add a little more sugar to taste. Serve in 'over the top' cocktail glasses; it's the only way to enjoy them!
