With summer coming we all want to have some lazy days sitting out back enjoying the weather. Here is a delicious sipper filled with fresh fruit and a little alcohol too!! It took me a couple of tries (oh darn) to perfect it but I think I got it down. You can keep the simple syrup in the fridge for up to three months, so you can enjoy this drink all summer long.
2 oz. white rum
1/2 oz. triple sec
3/4 cup mixed sliced strawberries and pineapple chunks
1 cup ice
1 oz. simple syrup (1 cup water and 1 cup sugar needed)
1 oz. lime juice, fresh or bottled
For the simple syrup mix one cup sugar and one cup water in a saucepan, stir and bring to a boil. Once sugar is dissolved remove from heat. Refrigerate until cold.
In a blender place all ingredients and blend until completely liquefied on the ice crush selection of your blender. Serve in a daiquiri glass topped with a cube of pineapple and a strawberry on a skewer. Stick in a straw and find a nice chair outdoors to relax in.
