Did you have a wonderful 4th of July? We went to a BBQ and then watched fireworks from our balcony. I took about 2 dozen photos and now will have to see how many of them actually turned out since fireworks are tough to capture with a cellphone.
I just love watching the firework shows with family in the summer. Another thing I love about summer is refreshing summer cocktails. Especially ones made with the fresh fruits of summer. So today I am sharing a fun Pineapple Daiquiri Recipe.
There is nothing like a frosty cocktail on a warm spring or summer day or evening, especially if you on the beach or near water. I made these the other day. This Pineapple Daiquiri Recipe are perfect for a barbecue or luau.
I am sharing my easy pineapple daiquiri recipe today. I made this one with fresh pineapple, but you can also use canned or bottled pineapple juice to save time.
Before you do anything, let me share my photos of how to cut the pineapple. Remove the stalk and bottom with a knife. Then cutt of the side skin.
Once you have your fruit left, cut into 1 - 1 ½" chunks.
You will also need a juicer or blender. I have an old school blender and it works well.
In minutes you will have this.

Pineapple Daiquiri Recipe
⅔ cup water
2 teaspoons sugar
2 ounces light rum
½ ounce lime juice
1 cup ice cubes
Remove all skin from pineapple. It is important that you cut off any pieces of remaining skin off, or else you will have to drain your drink. Once you have removed all skin, cut into 1 inch chunks. Discard skin.
Place ice in a blender.
Add all but 4 chunks in blender.
Add remaining ingredients and blend well on high speed.
Pour into glasses and add garnish. Serves 4.
Oh and if you need a reason to make these? National Daiquiri Day is July 19th. There is your excuse you need to make them. Your welcome!
