Cherry Daiquiris by @UpsideDownPear

I bought a bag of cherries to make a different type of dessert and had some leftover. It’s summer, which means that it’s fruity drink time (though really any time is fruity drink time). Usually we have strawberry flavored daiquiris, but I thought if you could make it with strawberries, why not with cherries? It’s almost cherry season and it’s a big deal up north. They have a cherry festival every year around the Fourth of July. We don’t normally go since there are just too many people. I decided to make this in it’s place.

Bren is the king of daiquiri making, so I let him do all the work. I did pit the cherries and that’s a pretty messy job. The secret ingredient is vanilla ice cream. This took me by surprise as I have always just had the pleasure of drinking them and ignoring the making prices. The ice cream gives it a smooth creamy texture and adds a bit of sweetness to the tart cherries. There’s also ice for filler and to keep it from tasting too much like a milkshake. With half ice cream and half ice, the flavor of the cherries really shines through.

We added spiced rum, coconut rum, and peach schnapps. This combination gives it more of that tropical vibe; typical of a daiquiri. This drink is best served outside on the porch, sitting by a pool, or after a day of gardening (which I don’t do but if I did I image this to be super refreshing afterwards). Basically, this drink is perfect any time and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
