Note: Of course this will be wonderful with strawberries you picked and froze yourself, but I made a point to test it with freezer-section strawberries to make sure we still liked the results — and we did! I did find that flavor, color, and juicing ranged a lot between bags, so adjust these ingredients as needed to make your perfect glass. This scales easily for a pitcher for a crowd.
- 1 heaped cup frozen strawberries
- 2/3 cup ice cubes
- 5 tablespoons light rum
- 1 to 2 tablespoons lime juice, to taste
- 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
Combine everything, starting with 1 tablespoon lime juice, in a blender and blend until smooth. You’ll probably need to scrape it down a few times because everything is so cold going in, but it’s worth it for a drink that stays icy on a hot day. Taste, adding more lime juice, ice, sugar, or rum to taste. Pour into two glasses and drink immediately.
