We love entertaining and having guests over. Sometimes its a simple invitation to join us for dinner and other times we pull out all the stops – appetizers, full BBQ, bounce house and The Shotski. Having been a bartender for several years, it’s at these bigger events that I enjoy creating and serving fun cocktails. During the summer months, something frozen and with an umbrella is the favorite. Thing is, between the food preparation and the constant blending of fruit and alcohol, I usually end up spending all my time tied up in the kitchen rather than enjoying the company of my guests.
When BACARDÍ asked me to try out their new Classic Cocktails Light Strawberry Daiquiri, I was all in. A ready to drink cocktail mix that’s made with natural ingredients and only 95 calories? Yes, please! When my sample bottle arrived, I immediately poured myself a glass over ice. It tastes exactly like a Strawberry Daiquiri and in fact, kind of threw me off a little bit that it wasn’t icy and blended. I am NOT a “diet” or “light” anything person. I like full flavor and full calories so I was also surprised that I liked it so much. Looking at the glass, I was reminded of my favorite poolside tropical vacation drink – a Strawberry Mojito. I grabbed some mint from my herb garden and sliced up a lime. I muddled them together into a new cup, added ice and filled with Classic Cocktails Light Strawberry Daiquiri. I served this at our Father’s Day BBQ and it was a HUGE hit! (Next time I’m going to try adding fresh blueberries into the muddling process!) I loved that it only took a minute to make and that it had everyone raving. I just found my new summer get together secret weapon. Thanks BACARDÍ!
