Ingredients for a Virgin Strawberry Daiquiri
Are you wondering what goes into a virgin strawberry daiquiri? Our recipe has just a few, tasty ingredients blended together to make a perfect non alcoholic frozen drink. Here is what we use:
Frozen Strawberries- A delicious strawberry daiquiri mocktail starts with real, frozen strawberries. Look for frozen strawberries that are pre sliced as they will blend easier.
You can also slice and freeze your own berries. Using frozen berries is key to ensure that the daiquiri has a nice slushy consistency.
Simple syrup- Simple syrup gives the daiquiri a sweet taste and it enhances the flavor of the berries. Simple syrup is just a mix of equal parts sugar and water.
Boil the two ingredient together until the sugar dissolves. Be sure to cool the syrup before using it for your daiquiri.
Lemon and Lime Juice- Next comes the lemon and lime juice which are the two flavors that make a daiquiri unique. Use fresh squeezed lemon and lime juice if possible to really make the daiquiri drool-worthy.
Sprite- Sprite adds to the lemon lime flavor and gives the mocktail a nice bubbly texture. It’s one thing that makes this a daiquiri and not just a smoothie!
Any kind of lemon lime soda will work. You can also use lemon lime seltzer if you would like to have a mocktail with a little less sugar.
Water and Ice- Water helps the daiquiri blend easier. Adding a little more liquid to the blender will give you nice, smooth results.
Ice makes the daiquiri thick and is 100% necessary in a frozen drink. You may be able to skip the water in the recipe if using a super powerful blender.
How to Make a Strawberry Daiquiri with No Alcohol
Making a strawberry daiquiri could not be any easier. All you need to do is add all the ingredients in a blender, blend until smooth and then pour the frozen daiquiri into a big glass. You will have yourself a sweet, slightly tart, completely delicious drink!
This may quickly become your go-to summer blended drink so be sure to stock up on frozen berries next time you head to the grocery store.

Is daiquiri a girly drink?
Daiquiris are for everyone. If you like strawberries, then a daiquiri is the drink for you! Yes, it blends into a light, red beverage but that does not make it any less masculine.
In fact, a tasty big daiquiri is likely to attract some lady friends. Everyone will want to know what you are drinking that looks so good!
What is the girliest drink?
We don’t think that certain drinks are more feminine than others. However, fruity drinks tend to be portrayed as being “girly”. We just think they are tasty…
Is daiquiri mix the same as margarita mix?
Daiquiri mix and strawberry margarita mix are essentially the same thing. The only difference between a margarita and a daiquiri is the type of alcohol mixed into the drink.
Margaritas are usually made with tequila while daiquiris are made with rum. When you are making non alcoholic versions of these drinks, the drink mix can be used interchangeably.
How many calories are in a strawberry daiquiri?
A classic strawberry daiquiri cocktail made with rum has about 220 calories (this can vary based on specific ingredients.) One shot of rum has about 64 calories so, if you are omitting the alcohol in the daiquiri, it only has about 156 calories. Even more reason to drink non alcoholic beverages!
