Frozen Mango Daiquiris are a delicious way to celebrate summertime. Make and enjoy these icy, tropical rum drinks from the comfort of your own kitchen with just a blender!
Some of the most quintessential flavors of summer are the tropical ones, like coconut, kiwi, papaya or pineapple.
I suppose it’s because these fruits make us dream about other places…
Vacations, holidays, places we’ve been, places we want to go. The daydreaming is real.
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, 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.
How to make frozen daiquiris
For a hot summer day, hopefully spent by the pool, you should definitely whip up a batch of this Frozen Mango Daiquiri recipe.
They’re incredibly easy — all you need are just a few ingredients. Put some frozen mango, rum, lime juice and ice into a blender.
Blend it super smooth, pour it into some glasses with pretty straws, a sprig of mint, maybe some of those little paper parasols.
And aloha! Now you can pretend you’re in Hawaii.
(And if you’d like to actually pretend you are in Hawaii, my friend Lia has a virtual vacation of Maui you should check out while you sip on your daiquiris.)
I think this three-ingredient recipe is brilliant. (I don’t count the ice!)
Some recipes also require additional sweeteners, like simple syrup, agave or honey, but I find the mango to be just perfect on its own.
Keep in mind that you can make daiquiris with other fruits, besides mango. Lime is traditional but don’t miss these frozen lemon daiquiris.
Berries, 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!
What kind of rum goes in a frozen daiquiri?
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.
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.
As always, drink responsibly, but I hope you enjoy these Frozen Mango Daiquiris!
Enjoy and have a great weekend, friends! // susannah
