Strawberry Daiquiri

Nothing really special today but it's been so damn long since I've had a real, made from scratch, strawberry daiquiri.  Not the kind of sloppy and sugary thing you get from a machine at a second hand liquor joint, but something that is lightly alcoholic (or not) and full of fresh flavor.

Fresh Strawberry Daiquiri
½ lb Fresh Strawberries, hulled and cut in half
1oz Simple Syrup
2oz Lime Juice
4oz Cruzan Aged White Rum
1½ cups Ice
Whipped Cream and Cherry, for garnish
Whipped Lightening Passion Fruit Flavored Whipahol (optional)

Throw all ingredients into a blender and pulse for several passes until ice is chopped finely.  Then blend on high until smooth and uniform. Add garnish if desired.

Cruzan has also recently come out with a brand spanking new strawberry rum which I've recently tasted but I don't currently own a bottle so it's hard for me to make a recipe without being 100% sure it will be good.  We're going to pick it up from work tomorrow and I'll play around and let everyone know how it is but in the mean time, go get some strawberries before they become too expensive.

Bon Boire!
