We like that Ted Allen's daiquiri is not overly sweet, but if you are a fan of a sweet daiquiri, you can add a drizzle of simple syrup.
- 1/4 cup ice cubes
- 1/2 cup sliced fresh strawberries
- 4 tablespoons light rum
- 1/2 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
- 2 large fresh basil leaves plus 1 small sprig for garnish
Place the ice cubes, strawberries, light rum, balsamic vinegar and basil leaves in the pitcher of a blender and blend until smooth and slushy. Pour into a tall glass and garnish with a small basil sprig.
Cook's Note: If your strawberries aren't very sweet, add up to 1/2 teaspoon superfine sugar.
