Frozen Mason Jar Daiquiris

We recently ran across a post from The Yummy Life that showed a recipe, an easy one at that, for flavored frozen fruity daiquiris. Thinking it would be perfect for an upcoming backyard get-together, we set out to mix up a batch.

From left to right, Mango, Strawberry and Blueberry

Each daiquiri contains a LOT of frozen fruit (guess you could say it’s healthy!) and the taste is simply scrumptious. The best part is, you can mix up a whole bunch of them ahead of time, pour them into 16 oz. mason jars and freeze them until you need them – just leave a little room at the top as they expaned as they freeze! The alcohol keeps them from freezing completely, so just remove them from the freezer about 10 minutes before serving, stir slightly and add a garnish!

Make a batch without the rum for the little ones and designated drivers!

Which one looks tastiest to you?


Frozen Mason Jar Daiquiris
adapted from The Yummy Life
(makes about 4 – 8 oz. servings – each batch fills two 16 oz. mason jars)

3 – 6 oz. frozen lemonade concentrate
(we used about 4 oz. because we like them a little more sweet – less tart)


6 oz. light rum

4 c. frozen fruit
(we made one full batch of each: strawberry, blueberry, mango)


2 c. ice


sweetener
(optional and to taste) agave, raw sugar, etc. We didn’t need sweetener when we decreased the amount of frozen lemonade concentrate

fresh fruit for garnish

Blend frozen lemonade concentrate, rum, and frozen fruit (and sweetener if needed ) in a blender until smooth. Add ice and blend again until thick and frosty. Pour into a mason jar, garnish and serve, or freeze up to one month in the freezer.

Poppin’ Strawberry Colada

We wanted to post this one sooner, but finding pop rocks turned out to be quite the feat! We thought this might be a good recipe for the holiday weekend – festive, cold and rummy – and with a little sizzle and pop! This can easily be made without rum for the “yung uns” and designated drivers! Be safe and enjoy!

Poppin’ Strawberry Colada

Poppin’ Strawberry Colada
(makes two)

3 oz. gold rum
4 oz. pineapple juice
1 c. frozen strawberries
1 oz. coconut cream
1 c. ice
2 envelopes Strawberry Pop Rocks
blueberries for garnish

Blend rum, pineapple juice, strawberries and coconut cream until smooth. Add ice and blend until creamy. Dip the rim of two small glasses in a small bowl of pineapple juice, then dip in pop rocks (put the pop rocks on a plate for easier access). The rocks will begin to pop as soon as they get wet, but there is still some residual popping to enjoy as you sip! Add a garnish of blueberries for color. Cheers!

Rum Margarita Recipes

Need a Margarita recipe using rum for Cinco de Mayo? Si, si – we did too, so we experimented a little and came up with these two. With the rum, the taste  resembles a daiquiri, but with not a lot of added sugar, it’s not as sweet and you get the nice margarita tartness. Mmmm – Salud!
