I find that a strawberry daiquiri will always turn out better using fresh strawberries and superfine sugar. Using superfine sugar will disolve instantly. If you have a good blender, blend granulated sugar (alone in the blender) for a good 20-30 seconds and you'll get your own superfine sugar. The rum quantity was great. I would leave out the carbonated beverage, though, because it takes away from the strawberry flavour.
Made some changes ... but who doesn't? 1/2 cup sugar sounded too much, so I decreased 1/4 cup. Used a combination of Roses lime juice and fresh lime juice. Instead of lemon juice, substituted prepared orange juice. Be sure to blend this long enough to give sugar time to dissolve. Fantastic cocktail. My husband and I enjoyed a pitcher of these, congratulating ourselves for the $$ we saved, rather than ordering one after another in a bar!
This recipe has some definite potential! It was tasty, but just too sour for my tastes. I'll make it again, but with less lemon and lime juice. The consistency was just right, and the pinky hue made it fun to drink .I made it without rum.
