Summer drink you won't want to miss! This would be good with other berries too! The name Daiquirí is also the name of a beach near Santiago, Cuba, and an iron mine in that area. The cocktail was invented about 1905 in a bar named Venus in Santiago, about 23 miles east of the mine, by a group of American mining engineers. The daiquiri was one of the favorite drinks of writer Ernest Hemingway and president John F. Kennedy. This recipe is Cuban and Northeastern.
- Put the raspberries, limeade, and ice in a blender.
- Process until smooth and pour into 2 glasses.
- Garnish with mint sprigs and serve. Enjoy!
This was simple and refreshing. I made a single serving, used frozen raspberries with some blackberries and added an ounce of light rum. Even with the frozen berries half way through I wanted the drink a little colder and added a couple more ice cubes. I wish the seeds were less but not enough to bother straining them.

Loved it! Very refreshing even though I left the ice out. The lime and the mint are excellent additions and give this a real zing that is surprising and tasty. Please see my rating system: 4 stars for a recipe where unexpected flavours work very well together. Thanks!
