What is in a non-alcoholic Strawberry Daiquiri? 

This alcohol-free version of a frozen Daiquiri is quite far from the original Daiquiri Cocktail. So, for a Virgin Strawberry Daiquiri, you'll need the following:

  • Fresh strawberries: for the fresh fruitiness you'd expect from a strawberry mocktail
  • Frozen strawberries: In blended drinks, you either use ice or other frozen ingredients. Here, the latter is best. Read more below.
  • Non-alcoholic Rum alternative: this is what makes your drink feel like an actual drink and not like a smoothie.
  • Demerara syrup: To pronounce the sugar-cane flavor even more.
  • Fresh lime juice: to balance the sweetness of the other ingredients.

Why frozen & fresh strawberries?

Adding ice to fresh strawberries would make your drink too watery since the red berries already contain over 90% water.

So, to bring in the right texture and get these frozen and icy bits in the drink, you use frozen strawberries combined with fresh ones for more flavor. If you wonder why both, that's easy to answer.

Still, if you want that bang-on, delicious, natural strawberry taste, you will only get that from fresh fruits kept at room temperature. Freezing or cooling fruit (or any other food, for that matter) reduces the intensity of their taste.

Therefore, by finding the right balance of frozen vs. fresh strawberries, your Strawberry Daiquiri mocktail will have both: the necessary icy texture and a ton of flavor.

Replacing the Rum Part

This drink stands and falls with how you replace the alcohol ingredient - the rum- in the original recipe. Luckily, we now have a great option with non-alcoholic spirits.

My recommendation for replacing the white rum in the original recipe is Lyre's White Cane Spirit. This alcohol-free alternative, combined with a rich and sweet Demerara syrup, does an excellent job of imitating rum.

Mocktails, virgin drinks, or non-alcoholic cocktails - no matter which term you prefer, all suffer from the same problem. In the past, people often did that by adding lemon-lime soda, tonic water, or other soft drinks.

While the idea is plausible, usually, the results are far from what one can call a proper drink. In most cases, they were so far from the original taste that you shouldn't call them Daiquiri in the first place. At best, you could go with a strawberry smoothie. At worst, not even that.

Non-alcoholic spirits can solve this problem for you. Granted, they don't come cheap. However, they are great if you can't or don't want to drink alcohol.

More Tips and Tricks

Following our tips and tricks, you get more than just an ordinary strawberry smoothie. So, let's see how to make the best frozen Virgin Strawberry Daiquiri:

  • Put your strawberries in the freezer for at least 2 to 3 hours.
  • Get your strawberries on the same day you intend to use them in your drink.
  • Use fresh lime juice. Only then will you get the natural acidic flavor
  • Don't use white sugar. If you cannot get Demerara, go for regular brown sugar instead.
  • Put all the ingredients in a blender -no ice- and get a flavorful, sweet summer drink.
