Frozen Mango Daiquiri recipe

Some of the most quintessential flavors of summer are the tropical ones, like coconut, kiwi, papaya, mango and pineapple. That’s what I love about tiki drinks. The way they transport you to a sunny beach somewhere, even in your mind.

If you’ve been dreaming of faraway places and sandy beaches, these frozen mango daiquiris are the ticket. Daiquiris are the perfect drink for summertime!

To be honest, a traditional daiquiri isn’t the kind that’s made in a slushie machine. They are really a very different drink than their frozen cousins with the same name.

Classic daiquiris are strong. Made with rum, lime juice and simple syrup, they’re served neat, usually in a coupe glass. Those are delicious, and definitely the true meaning of the word daiquiri, but that’s not what we’re dealing with here.

These frozen mango daiquiris are every bit of the slushie machine drinks you’ll find in the French Quarter of New Orleans or at a beachside shack. The most delicious mango flavor that will transport you right to a vacation!

Best rum for daiquiris

For a frozen daiquiri, you should stick with either silver rum (AKA white rum) or gold rum.

Gold has a bit more body and is slightly stronger, because it’s aged in oak barrels, but it tastes great in fruity cocktails.

Silver is light and crisp, and makes a perfect mixer. It’s my choice for daiquiris and mojitos.

I always recommend choosing a rum in your price point. I have a whole guide about what kind of rum to use in drinks, but Bacardi is what I keep on hand at our house.

Substitutions & variations

Some daiquiri recipes also require additional sweeteners, like simple syrup, agave or honey, but I find the mango to be just perfect on its own. However, if you find the drink to be too tart you can add something to sweeten it.

Keep in mind that you can make daiquiris with other fruits, besides mango. Lime is traditional but don’t miss these frozen lemon daiquiris for a twist. Frozen or fresh strawberries make a delicious strawberry daiquiri, and other citrus and tropical fruits are all great choices as well.

You can absolutely use fresh fruit too, but you may need to add some more ice to compensate. Use a spoon to taste it so you can decide!

How To make a Frozen Mango Daiquiri

For a hot summer day, hopefully spent by the pool, you should definitely whip up a batch of this refreshing frozen mango daiquiri recipe. Here’s what you’ll need to do:

  1. Place the frozen mango, rum, lime juice and two cups of ice into a high powered blender.
  2. Then blend it until super smooth, pour into glasses.
  3. Add a garnish of fresh mango slices — or tropical flowers if you like!

Leftover mango? Make a tropical mango mojito or refreshing tiki punch. If you prefer something non-alcoholic, try hydrating mango agua fresca, a frozen mangonada or a filling mango smoothie!

Tips & tricks

Check out these simple tips to make your frozen mango daiquiri exceptional:

  • Use fresh squeezed lime juice instead of the bottled stuff. It really does make a difference with the taste and will produce a better final product.
  • Make sure all of the ice gets blended up before serving your frozen mango daiquiri. There’s nothing worse than getting a huge chunk of ice in a sip of a cocktail!
  • Don’t make these drinks until just before you are ready to serve. The ice will begin to melt, especially on a warm day, and you don’t want your cocktail to get watery!

What to serve with a Frozen Mango Daiquiri

This yummy drink is good with really any of your favorite snacks and appetizers! Serve it up with things like air fryer mozzarella sticks, whipped feta dip, and cilantro pineapple salsa with chips.

It’s a great drink to serve alongside a plate of nachos or a meal of Hawaiian chicken. Mango cocktails are great with charcuterie boards too!

Garnishes for a Mango Daiquiri

Candied lemon slices and lemon twist would both be great garnishes for this daiquri. In fact, any citrus slices or twists would be perfect! A sprig of fresh mint would be a nice touch too.

Or, you could rim each glass with something like chili lime seasoning for a fun twist on taste! A simple slice of mango and a pretty tropical flower would also be an easy garnish with a nice presentation.
