A Strawberry flavoured twist on the original rum cocktail, the Strawberry Daiquiri has become a classic in it’s own right. We give it the respect it deserves, carefully balancing dry white rum, fresh, fruity strawberry puree, tangy lime juice and a dash of sugar. This is a popular cocktail all year round and a guaranteed hit at any bar hire.
White Rum, Strawberry Puree, Lime Juice, Sugar Syrup.
The Strawberry Daiquiri is so well known it might even have surpassed the original iteration in terms of fame.
This fruity twist on the classic is created by simply adding a splash of strawberry puree to a standard Daiquiri and lowering the sugar a little to balance the sweetness, this gives the drink an entirely new character without sacrificing any of the charm of the original.
The Daiquiri is not only a great drink in its own right but the perfect base off which to experiment with flavours and ingredients and its variations don’t stop at strawberry. Whilst not necessarily a tiki drink itself the Daiquiri is certainly the basis for the vast majority of tiki cocktails. These drinks tend to be long, tropical, fruity delights, perfect for injecting some fun and exotic feeling into an event. If you’re serving a Strawberry Daiquiri and want some other fun, fruity, rum drinks on your menu, it’s worth thinking about including some tiki cocktails.
If you’d prefer to stick to shorter Martini-style cocktails, the Strawberry Daiquiri fits well in a classics menu, there are a number of simple variations of this drink you could serve alongside it. The obvious choice would be the original Daiquiri; this simple rum sour is dry, mildly sweet, tangy and refreshing and a good alternative to the sweeter, fruit based versions, you might also want to try the Basil & Honey Daiquiri; using honey as a sweetener and adding fresh basil leaves to the base recipe, creates a beautifully floral, naturally sweet and lightly herbaceous take on the classic.
If you’re thinking about serving the Strawberry Daiquiri at your bar hire and want to know more about what drinks might accompany it will, be sure to speak to your event organiser about your options, or check out some other, rum based, fruity and classic cocktails from our list.

LEARN TO MAKE
Fancy learning some of the core techniques that go into making the perfect Strawberry Daiquiri? Join us on one of our range of cocktail making masterclasses.
We’re strong advocates of experience and it’s crucial role to picking up and applying knowledge. That’s why we deliver each of our range of cocktail making classes in as interactive a fashion as possible – providing a fully-equipped bar station for each of our guests, in turn giving them a great opportunity to really get to grips with the professional-standard equipment and ingredients at hand. On top of this, the fact that there will never be more than 5 guests to any one bar limits the time spent standing around as much as possible, meaning nobody’s experience is compromised.
The open-to-the-public variety of our cocktail making classes run every Friday and Saturday at our sister company and permanent home on Shoreditch’s Kingsland Road, TT Liquor, which houses a range of fully-equipped cocktail making studios.
We also offer the option of taking things private if you’re part of a group of 6 or more aspiring mixologists. Our mobile cocktail class service allows us to take our portable bars on the road with us to any location across London, the UK and beyond. We have over a decade of experience and in that time we’ve held classes half way up the Shard, in a client’s back garden, and even as far afield as the Scottish Highlands.
If any of this sounds right up your street, please don’t hesitate to give us a call on 020 8003 7982 and one of our dedicated events organisers will happily talk you through some your options, as well as answer any queries you may have about our services.
