Lemon-Lime Ginger Frozen Daiquiri

Lemon-Lime Ginger Frozen Daiquiri

Holy moly, has it been hot out there! Let’s cool off with a lemon-ginger frozen daiquiri, OK?

Like I mentioned last week, my husband’s family and I headed to Saint Simon’s Island for a week of summery fun. My sister-in-law Liz’s afternoon ritual was to sip a frozen daiquiri by the pool with her book, and it made me realize that I have never posted a daiquiri recipe in this space!

Well, consider the situation remedied!

Liz asked me to come up with a lime daiquiri recipe, but you guys know that I can’t leave well enough alone. Instead of limes, this frozen daiquiri features lemon and ginger for a sweet-and-spicy party in your mouth.

My original plan was to juice fresh lemons for this drink, but Whole Foods was having a sale on Honest Lemonade. Honest’s ingredients looked pretty decent to me, so instead of lemons, water, and sugar, I saved you some time using bottled lemonade. Yay!

Of course, if you prefer to go all from-scratch, you can make a pitcher of lemonade before you make your frozen daiquiri.
