Frozen cocktails are so refreshing in the summertime. The key to a delicious blended cocktail is using fresh ingredients, not premade mixers. While convenient, mixers usually contain artificial flavors and sweetness which result in a mediocre cocktail. Fresh lime juice, strawberry puree, simple syrup - these ingredients should be apart of your cocktail creating arsenal. Serve anyone of these cocktails poolside with a umbrella just for fun.
This strawberry rum based cocktail is given a fruity kick with an icy pineapple coconut puree.
This recipe uses real watermelon instead of the bottled mix so you should too!
If Key limes are unavailable in your area, feel free to substitute with regular limes.
