Welcome to strawberry season here on our farm. It’s the most wonderful time of the year in my book. To celebrate, I am going to share some great strawberry recipes over the next few weeks. I only wish Jersey Strawberry season would last longer. But we enjoy them as much as we can during the season.

 

Remember that old familiar expression, “It’s 5 O’Clock Somewhere.” Today, even as I write this in the very early hours of the morning, I am going to share with you a delicious Strawberry Shortcake Daiquiri. It’s a  slightly different version of my ABSOLUTE favorite drink….EVERRRRRRR – a strawberry daiquiri!

This Strawberry Shortcake Daiquiri mimics the flavors of Strawberry Shortcake dessert. It has a delicious hint of vanilla in the recipe.

Ever since I was a young child, I have had a thing for slushie drinks. To this day, I still will occasionally hit up our local convenience store and treat myself to one. The reason why I enjoy a daiquiri so much is pretty simple. They are an adult version slush. Hello – what’s not to love. You just have to watch out for the brain freezes. I learned from my years of experience that you just need to sip s-l-o-w-l-y.

What makes this drink into a strawberry shortcake daiquiri is the whipped cream vodka and almond milk that I added into the mix. They both add a nice vanilla creamy flavor to the background of the drink. It is especially refreshing on a hot summer’s day.

To make strawberry simple syrup, combine equal parts sugar, water and strawberries in a saucepan. Bring to a boil and let the sugar dissolve. Let the syrup cool completely. Add to a blender and process until smooth.

Did I ever tell you how much I love whipped cream? It wasn’t me who squirted the whipped cream can in my mouth. I promise….

A non-alcoholic version of this Strawberry Shortcake Daiquiri is just as delicious. You can substitute vanilla or whipped cream syrup for the vodka. Your kids will love the non-alcoholic version too! Cool and refreshing.

Cheers! I hope you enjoy. And remember, it’s always 5 o’clock somewhere!
