Frozen Strawberry Daiquiri
Although the exact origin of the frozen strawberry daiquiri is not clear, the frozen daiquiri was born when Constantino "Constante" Ribalaigua Vert (owner and bartender of a small bar called Floridita, in Havana) added shaved ice to the mix and the use of a blender. The first published receipe for the strawberry daiquiri is said to be in the 1952 Electric Blender Recipe book by Mabel Stegner.
This rum cocktail is striking, with it's bright red appearance, and the fruity strawberries, sharp citrus and sweet syrup combine for a delicious drink.

4-6 fresh or frozen strawberries.
Half a fresh strawberry or a slice of lime
