Frozen Peach Daiquiris

I'm totally in denial about summer's end.  Last week's 85-degree heatwave may have been summer's last gasp, but it gave me the perfect excuse to whip up a batch of daiquiris.

You can substitute any fruit you like.  Strawberries or mangoes also work well.  Use frozen fruit, because it's a frozen drink! But if you prefer to use fresh fruit, freeze the fruit ahead of time and you'll be good to go.

Frozen Peach Daiquiris (2-3 servings)
Printable Recipe
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 1/2 cups frozen peaches
  • 1/2 lime, juiced
  • 1 cup ice cubes
  • 1/4 cup vodka
Lime slices, for garnish

Gather your ingredients.

Make sure the water is in a microwave-safe cup.  Heat the water on HIGH for 30 seconds.

Stir the sugar into the hot water.  It should dissolve, if not melt completely.

This is my lazy way to make a simple syrup.  It is such a small amount of water and sugar, to get out a saucepan to melt the sugar just seems silly.  

Place the frozen peaches into a blender and add the water/sugar mixture.

It doesn't matter if the water is still hot, it is such a relatively small amount of liquid that it does not cool down the frozen peaches too much.

Blend to combine.

Add the ice, vodka and the juice of half a lime.

Blend one last time.

Pour into large glasses, garnished with lime slices.

  1. I'd have loved slurping one of those a few days ago when we were sweating at the campground, but needed to turn on heat in our camper a couple days later. Kahlua and coffee then. Your daiquiris look yummy and gorgeous. :)


I love to hear what you think!
