Apricot Daiquiri


Apricot liqueur adds a rich apricot flavour to this drink, but you may substitute apricot brandy if you desire. The drink will taste stronger and won’t be quite as sweet.


2 cups ice
3/4 cup canned apricot halves, drained and semi frozen
3 ounces gold rum
2 ounces apricot liqueur
Juice of 2 limes
2 teaspoons superfine sugar


1. Combine all the ingredients in a blender.
2. Cover and pulse on and off until the mixture starts to swirl evenly.
3. Blend on high for 20 seconds, or until the drink is completely smooth.


ALMOND APRICOT DAIQUIRI Omit the apricot liqueur. Add 2 ounces almond liqueur (such as amaretto) before blending.

CHERRY APRICOT DAIQUIRI Reduce the apricot halves to ½ cup and reduce the apricot liqueur to 1 ounce. Add ½ cup semi frozen, pitted cherries and 1 ounce cherry liqueur before blending.

HERBAL APRICOT DAIQUIRI Omit the gold rum and apricot liqueur. Add 3 ounces spiced rum (such as Captain Morgan) and 2 ounces herbal liqueur before blending.

LEMON APRICOT DAIQUIRI Omit the apricot liqueur and lime juice. Add 2 ounces lemon liqueur and the juice of 1 large lemon before blending.
