Many people like to enjoy this cocktail as a blended drink. Instead of pouring into a cocktail shaker, just add the same ingredients to a blender, cover and let it go until blended smooth.
If you prefer your Daiquiri blended, feel free to experiment with sweet fruits such as a banana or some strawberries. Keep the base recipe above and just add a few pieces of your chosen fruit to the blender.
