recipe: Strawberry orange daiquiri - cool off from summer's heat with one of these
Mary Bilyeu | Contributor
Anyone who knows me — frankly, anyone who spends four seconds with me! — knows that I'm a prissy girly-girl. I don't drink beer; I don't like it, although it's fabulous to cook with. I don't drink hard liquor like bourbon or whiskey or tequila, and I loathe gin. I don't even drink very much at all, although I do like to go to wine tastings and try to learn a bit while having fun.
But if I'm going to drink, I like the froofy drinks that usually come with paper umbrellas or fruit skewers or whipped cream. What can I say? They're light, they're festive, they're sweet, they're perky... they're me!
This is an ideal cooling drink for summery weather, and it offers a flavor as vibrant as its color. It's easy to make and easy to drink — not very strong at all.
And it's perfect for when you're just relaxing in the backyard, enjoying a beautiful evening with friends.
