Thursday is my Friday !
And I say let's get this weekend started!
The hubs is not quite the lush I am , but he does like margaritas and daiquiris.
I received this recipe in an email today .
It's going to be super hot and humid here this weekend.
Plus we have loads of fresh strawberries from my mother-in-laws strawberry bed .
So this looked like the PERFECT cocktail to make at the Trailerhood II.
6 cups fresh or frozen strawberries
6 oz. can frozen limeade
3/4 cup light rum
16 oz. lemon-lime soda
2 cups ice cubes
If using fresh strawberries, remove stems and caps. For frozen strawberries, thaw the berries after measuring; do not drain.
Place strawberries, half at a time, in a blender container or food processor bowl. Cover; blend or process until smooth. Transfer blended berries to a large pitcher. Stir in limeade concentrate and light rum. Cover; chill until serving time.
Just before serving, stir in the lemon-lime carbonated beverage and the ice. If desired, garnish with whole berries. Makes 8 to 12 servings.
Combine blended berries with concentrate and rum . Cover and chill up to 4 hours. Add carbonated beverage and ice just before serving.
There is also a non-alcoholic version too .
(not that I'll use it of course)
But I think this would also be nice for a summer bridal or baby shower.
All you do is substitute pineapple juice for the rum .
There you have it !
