Key Lime Daiquiri

Day 155


Key Lime Daiquiri
4.5 shots out of 5


Took the kids to out County Museum today.  One of my boys had gone on a field trip and for doing so they gave him a voucher for 2 adults and 3 kids to return for free.......so why not!  It was a pretty cool museum I must say!  I wasn't expecting to enjoy it as much as I did.  All four of my kids (13, 7, 3 & 1) all enjoyed it as well.

I gave tonight's cocktail 4.5 shots out of 5.  I got this cocktail through a pin on Pinterest which landed me to a blog called Hungry Couple.  They have a page with the daiquiris they've made so far (looks pretty good!!)  First off I love this lime green color of the daiquiri!  I can definitely taste the midori and pineapple juice (which go well together!)  I took the recipe on the blog and halved it (even the ice cubes, which I'm thinking maybe I shouldn't have done) and mine didn't turn out as thick as the one on the Hungry Couples blog, but it's still super yummy (that's why I took off the word frozen from the title for my cocktail)!  I am sucking this cocktail down pretty quickly and am about to go pour the last few sips that are in the blender in my glass as well!

Here is the recipe for a Key Lime Daiquiri:

  • 2 oz light rum
  • 2 oz midori
  • 1 oz pineapple juice
  • 1 oz lime juice
  • 1/2 oz simple syrup
In a blender add ice and all of the ingredients above.  Blend everything together until all of the ice is gone.  Pour and enjoy!


Here is a photo of the end result:

Here's to a brand new daiquiri and the great people at Hungry Couple for the recipe!!

Cheers!!

  1. I love key lime, so eager to try this. I'm curious, though, if it is supposed to be straight lime juice or sweetened lime juice. The recipe just says lime, but you used the sweet stuff according to the photo.

    1. The one I used tasted great to me. I'm really liking the Rose's lime juice, it's not as potent as the Key West Lime Juice I used to use. It adds a good lime flavor without making you think you just suck on a lime.

  2. I'm glad you enjoyed our drink! You are correct that it does take a lot of ice to achieve the thickness. We based the frozen drink off a non-frozen version we had on vacation. It has the pineapple and Midori flavors you liked but without the hassle of the ice. Here's the recipe: (Sorry about the link. Feel free to delete it if you don't want it on your blog.)

    1. Not a problem about the link! That martini looks AH-MAZ-ING.......I just may have to try that one very very soon! My husband came home last night from our oldest's baseball practice and I told him what cocktail I had made and what was in it (because it was already gone!), and he was instantly jealous, saying "A Key Lime Daiquiri?...I like Key Lime....that sounds REALLY good!". Thank You again for the recipes! =)

  3. Nice! I love key lime, especially in cocktails! I'm having a girls night tonight and think it'd be fun to whip some of these daiquiris up!
