This is probably not the best thing to say, but my very first Strawberry Daiquiri happened in 1987 at a party… yes I was only 15. It was love at first taste and from that moment on, it has been a love affair. I have dabbled with other favours and ingredients, in fact, I have even gone to other spirits like vodka, but I have always returned to this deliciously refreshing drink, that you have to watch, because it will quietly creep up on you!
It is also a bit hit and miss in cocktail bars, so I think that they best way to have the one I like, is to make it myself at home! I must say that the Thermomix has made it a lot easier, quicker and assessable… which could be a bad thing, but hey… life is too short to drink bad cocktails!
2 Punnets of Ripe Strawberries

I hope you enjoy my version of this delicious drink… Normally this is the point where I say enjoy irresponsibly… but we all know that alcohol should always be enjoyed responsibly.
