This Peach Daiquiri recipe is frothy, fresh and frozen thanks to year-round frozen peaches, fresh lime juice, sweet rum and Cointreau for a hot summer day.
16 oz / 1 lb bag frozen peaches
½ cup fresh lime juice
8 oz rum (I use Bacardi)
4 oz Cointreau or triple sec (orange liquor)
2 oz honey, agave nectar or simple syrup
2 cups ice
lime wedges, maraschino cherries + mint sprigs, for garnish
- In a large blender, add frozen peaches, lime juice, rum, Cointreau, honey and ice. Blend on high until smooth and creamy, about 30-60 seconds.
- Serve in a large glass with a lime wedge, maraschino cherry and mint sprig.
Fresh Peaches: When peaches are in peak season (late July-August), use 6 medium-size, ripe yellow peaches instead of frozen. Slice in half to remove the pit, then cut into quarters – no need to peel!
Mocktail: Omit the rum and Cointreau and add in 10 ounces of pineapple juice.
