With evenings becoming lighter and warmer, it’s time to wave a fond farewell to thick jumpers and winter vegetables and celebrate National Strawberry Month with us and our latest juicy cocktail.
Strawberries were first introduced to cocktails after the creation of the Daiquiri. Stepping into the limelight around 1902, the Daiquiri became a much loved cocktail. It was later modified in the 1930’s by ‘El Grande Constante’ (as he was known) who created the frostier version we all know and love today. Variations of the Daiquiri were endless; many different flavours were added to the cocktail including one of our favourites…strawberry.
Although the Daiquiri is a well-loved classic, our bartender family couldn’t help but create a delicious twist on such a classic cocktail. Why not have a go with this easy to follow cocktail recipe…?
