Create an instant party and mix up something fun with these easy Strawberry Rhubarb Daiquiris!
Summer is in full swing here on the property and I am celebrating in style! The patio project is nearly complete and I’m loving the relaxed staycation vibe in the backyard.
This weekend I’ve decided to finally take advantage of the gorgeous weather we’ve been having here in Portland and have a few friends over for a casual patio-warming party. I love any excuse to have a get-together, so I’ve stocked my freezer with my new secret weapon for instant parties: BACARDI® Mixers! I love coming up with new cocktail concoctions, so when BACARDI® invited me to whip up something fun with their collection of frozen mixers, I jumped at the opportunity. One of my very favorite flavor combinations is strawberry rhubarb. I adore strawberry rhubarb pie, strawberry rhubarb smoothies, and earlier this week I made a strawberry rhubarb compote to use as a pancake topping. This recipe really couldn’t be any easier: Just simmer 4 cups chopped rhubarb, 1/4 cup sugar, and juice of half a lemon in a saucepan for a few minutes until the fruit is fork tender.
Puree the mixture in a blender, then let it cool for ten minutes. Next, add a can of frozen Strawberry Daiquiri BACARDI® Mixer, one cup of rum (I used BACARDI® Superior), and fill the blender with ice cubes.
Blend on high until smooth, divide the mixture into six serving glasses, and garnish with lemon and strawberries. Voila!
I’m also going to be whipping up a batch of this awesome Lawn Games Punch recipe that I found on the BACARDI® Mixers site.
I love blended drinks, but sometimes being the party host can be overwhelming and it’s nice to have a self-service punch made up and available to guests.
I can’t wait to share the patio-warming party pictures after I recover from the get-together. I’ve been hoarding the before-and-after pictures from the patio transformation for MONTHS now!
My reason to party: a successful home remodeling project. If that isn’t reason enough to party, then I don’t know what is!
We could all use a few more festive functions this summer, so do yourself a favor and head over to the BACARDI® Mixers site and check out their cocktail recipes, Party planning tips, and celebration inspiration! Alright, enough chit chat for now. Time to make a few more of these daiquiris!
