It was a good year for satsumas – the crop from my Dad’s tree had my Mom and my niece working for a few hours today to juice them all.
We also had bought a flat strawberries back in the spring that we froze after slicing them and putting them in pint bags with a little sugar. I pulled the final bag out of the freezer this afternoon.
Combine the both of those ingredients and you’ve got the perfect makings for a daiquiri.
Strawberry Satsuma Daiquiri
1 pint strawberries, sliced and frozen
1 cup satsuma juice
1 cup sugar
juice of 1 lime
4 oz light rum (or more!)
If using frozen strawberries in syrup, skip this step. Make a simple syrup by bringing the satsuma juice and sugar to a boil in a small saucepan. Allow to chill.
In a blender, put the frozen strawberries and juice in a blender. Add rum, lime juice and ice and blend well. Taste and add additional lime juice if too sweet or more satsuma juice if too sour.
