This frosty cool Citrus Daiquiri is lime-accented, salt-rimmed, pure frozen bliss.. or is it a Margarita? I guess it depends what shot of alcohol you use, right? I'm not a bartender. But I know this sip will inspire a fiesta for sure. Fresh orange juice makes it divinely juicy in flavor..
Inspired Daiquiri . I was staring at my bowl of Valencia juicing oranges and wanted to try a freshly squeezed juice daiquiri with them.
The flavors of this daiquiri are light and fresh – creamy and smooth. The lime-scented undertones accent the light sweet orange flavors perfectly. A scoop of frozen pineapple adds the perfect hint of zing.
Frozen Drink Tip! Instead of plain water ice cubes, try freezing juice into cubes for extra flavor. Or you can even freeze coconut water ice cubes for a subtle tropical flavor – and plenty of healthy electrolytes.
The best part about creating a daiquiri is that there are really no rules! You can use a wide variety of juices and fresh fruits – frozen too. Guava. Banana. Kiwi. Pineapple. Apple. Watermelon. Papaya. Coconut. Strawberry. Blueberry. Lime. Grapefruit. And on and on.. Blend up your craving. The only rule: no “margarita mix” allowed.
