you're a health conscious you may want to replace some or all of the sugar in
your daiquiris with real fruit. You can try strawberries, mangoes, pineapples,
blueberries or peaches, fresh or frozen, with ice, lime juice, rum and
sweetener to taste. Don’t use raspberries and blackberries because their flavour
not match with daiquiris If your fruit
is fresh and sweet, you may not need to use any sugar or syrup at all.
You can try some variations like Hemingway daiquiri make it using two
and a half jiggers of white rum, juice of two limes and half a grapefruit, six
drops of maraschino liqueur, without sugar. For making Banana daiquiri you can use regular daiquiri
with a half a banana. Avocado daiquiri is a very healthy version of daiquiri, you can prepare it using regular daiquiri with half an avocado. Commercially they use larger machines for preparing such drinks and a wide variety of flavors
made with various alcohol or liquors.
