Frozen Daiquiri Recipe

To give the drink a pink tint, I added a few drops of maraschino cherry juice from a jar we’d brought back from the U.S. (You can’t get maraschino cherries, or any other kind of cherries for that matter, in Cuba.) 

Serves 2 

2 ounces white rum
1 1/2 tbs sugar
1 ounce lime juice
1 tsp maraschino liquor
(Optional: 1/2 tsp juice from a maraschino cherry jar)
12 ice cubes

Put all the ingredients in a blender and beat until smooth. Divide between two daiquiri or wine glasses and serve. (For the kids, I made virgin daiquiris with the following: 1 1/2 tbs sugar, 1 ounce lime juice, 1 tsp maraschino cherry juice, and 2 cups of ice.)
