Summer – a time to slow down, take it easy, and enjoy the weather. Ha, ha, ha, not at my house! Since the kids got out of school nearly five weeks ago, it’s been nothing but rush, rush rush – to camp, to golf lessons, to get the house ready entertain guests, and so on. (We’ve had three dinner parties just this month!) In addition, I’m working full time and am as busy as ever, so there’s no time to take it easy and sit by the pool. And enjoying the weather? Well, all it’s done is rain in Georgia this month, which has been a real drag.
By the end of the day, I’m pooped and want to relax with a nice cocktail on the front porch before dinner. However, I just don’t have the energy to fix a fancy summertime cocktail in the blender. That’s why BACARDÍ CLASSIC COCKTAILS LIGHT Strawberry Daiquiri is a delicious and convenient way to indulge in a cocktail. All you need to do is pour it over crushed ice, and you have a low calorie BACARDÍ Strawberry Daiquiri for yourself.
BACARDÍ CLASSIC COCKTAILS LIGHT Strawberry Daiquiri is also a super easy way to have cocktails for guests. There’s no measuring BACARDÍ rum, fresh fruit, or daiquiri mix into the blender. Instead, just pour. It’s like having your own bartender in a bottle! And unlike getting a cocktail at a bar, this is a LIGHT drink. It has the same delicious taste as the BACARDÍ CLASSIC COCKTAILS, but has less than 95 calories per serving. It’s also made with natural strawberry flavor, real lime juice and cane sugar, unlike a lot of those gnarly cocktail mixes from the store.
You can find BACARDÍ CLASSIC COCKTAILS LIGHT drinks in 1.75L and 750ml sizes, too.
BACARDÍ CLASSIC COCKTAILS LIGHT Strawberry Daiquiri serving ideas
I like my daiquiri with a sprig of mint from the garden, but there are several ways to serve up BACARDÍ CLASSIC COCKTAILS LIGHT Strawberry Daiquiri for yourself or for guests at your next party:
- Strawberry Daiquiri Spritzer – serve half strawberry daiquiri and half seltzer. Since BACARDÍ CLASSIC COCKTAILS LIGHT Strawberry Daiquiri has natural strawberry flavors, it would go wonderfully with flavored seltzers like lime or orange. Not only does the seltzer give your drink some bubbly goodness, it reduces BACARDÍ CLASSIC COCKTAILS LIGHT Strawberry Daiquiri’s already low calories even further.
- Strawberry Daiquiri Sangria – instead of wine, use BACARDÍ CLASSIC COCKTAILS LIGHT Strawberry Daiquiri in your sangria! In a large pitcher, mix the strawberry daiquiri with various fruits like cherries, apples, oranges, and raspberries. (Fill the pitcher half way.) Add a few sprigs of mint and/or basil. Let sit in the refrigerator overnight and just before serving add diet ginger ale or a flavored seltzer. Serve in wine glasses along with some of the fruit. Yum!
- Spiked Watermelon – yes, you can infuse a watermelon with BACARDÍ CLASSIC COCKTAILS LIGHT Strawberry Daiquiri for an adult dessert just like Lisa did in her post Spiked Watermelon with BACARDI Classic Cocktails Light. I thought her idea was brilliant, don’t you?
- Shaved Ice - do you have a shaved ice maker? Why not pour some BACARDÍ CLASSIC COCKTAILS LIGHT Strawberry Daiquiri over some snow cones? Or use the finely shaved ice to make a “slushy” drink in a glass. Just make sure that you keep the kids away from these grownup treats!
Just some words of warning. BACARDÍ CLASSIC COCKTAILS LIGHT Strawberry Daiquiri is immensely drinkable and you may find yourself drinking a little too fast. Please DRINK RESPONSIBLY. Also, the pink color of the drink may be very attractive to kids as it looks a bit like fruit punch. So tell the kids that this is for adults only and keep it out of reach.
When it comes to at-home entertaining, we want to have our cocktail and drink it too. With BACARDI Classic Cocktails Light, you don’t need to choose between serving great cocktails or socializing with friends.
