Strawberry Daiquiri Mocktail Tips and Tricks



So What Is Ritual Rum Alternative, Anyway?

Ritual Zero Proof is a beverage company that uses natural botanicals to create delicious tasting, non-alcoholic spirits to use in place of their alcoholic counterparts. It gives you the option to unwind with a refreshing drink, without the after-effects of drinking alcohol.

It’s calorie-free, all-natural and downright delicious. The rum alternative uses warm vanilla, toasted spice, orange and toffee to capture the essence of dark rum.

Fresh Vs Frozen

Strawberries are a warm-weather crop, thriving in the summer months. Buying produce locally and while it’s in season is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint in terms of food miles.

An ingredient’s food miles is the distance that particular ingredient has traveled to get to the produce aisle in your supermarket, into your cart, and then onto your plate.

If you are buying fresh strawberries in the winter in a colder climate, you can assume it’s been imported—and quickly.

Frozen strawberries are harvested and frozen at their peak, and are generally transported in a more sustainable way since they stay frozen in transport (likely by ship instead of a plane—much less fuel!).

While the best practice is to buy locally and in-season, buying frozen fruit when it’s out of season is second best. It generally means less pesticide residue, likely fewer associated transportation emissions, and less food waste. And for this recipe, in particular, they work perfectly!

Here’s everything you’ll need:

strawberries, non-alcoholic rum, lemon, ice, agave, lime

You’ll Need A Blender or Food Processor

In addition to your delicious ingredients, you’ll also need either a blender or a food processor, preferably a blender! I use this Ninja Blender (affiliate link) for this frozen mocktail and a lot of my sauces and vinaigrettes. It works like a charm!

Add The Ice First

It’s best to add the ice to the blender first to ensure it has the best access to the blades and crushes easily. It should break down to tiny, refreshing ice chips, resulting in an overall smooth consistency. Perfect way to cool down!

Once your ice is in, you can throw your other ingredients in, too!

You Can Leave Your Strawberries Whole

You’ll be using a whole 16 ounces (about 3 & 3/4 cups) of fresh or frozen strawberries to get that flavor to come through. We’re accustomed to chopping the greens off of the strawberries, but they’re actually perfectly edible.

To avoid food waste, keep the leaves on! They break down nicely in the blender, and have a very mild flavor.

Green tip: Consider buying organic strawberries for this recipe! Organic farms rely on biodiversity to generate rich soil, avoiding the use of pesticides and fertilizers, which means no toxic runoff.

Should You Have Leftovers

This recipe makes about 2 large frozen daiquiri mocktails. If you have leftovers, don’t chuck them out! Seal them in a container and store it in the freezer, sticking it back in the blender or allowing it to thaw before enjoying again.

Leftovers will last up to 5 days in the freezer. That said, these mocktails are best made fresh, so I wouldn’t recommend making these ahead of time if you can avoid it.
