In Louisiana we celebrate it everyday ! With drive up shops. But you might question the law about it ?

Drive-through daiquiri outlets began appearing in Louisiana in the early 1980s. By law, window customers may only be handed an unpunctured “closed container” cup. … Louisiana’s distinctive practice of handing a customer a straw and a “closed container” evolved over time, and not without skirmishes along the way.

But today they are common as any fast food place :  So let’s Drive up and order !

So get the Blender Out & Let’s Make some Frozen Daiquiri’s :  

  • 3/4 cups rum
  • 1/2 cup lime juice
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 pint fresh strawberries
  • 1-1/2 cups ice
  1. Place the ice in the bottom of the blender.
  2. Pour the other ingredients into the blender in the order listed.
  3. Pulse the blender a few times to begin to break up the ice. If your blender has an “ice” option, use it when pulsing until the ice has been reduced to small pieces.
  4. Set the blender to “high”, keeping it on the “ice” or “frozen” setting.
  5. Blend until the beverage is smooth and contains no large ice pieces.
  6. Take the pitcher off the blender and bang the bottom on the counter once or twice to settle the mixture.
  7. Return it to the blender and blend for an additional 10 or 15 seconds. This will help break up any remaining ice or strawberry chunks sitting on top.
  8. Shake the blender container slightly as you pour to help loosen the mixture and help it slide out easily.
  9. Pour into four, tall frosted glasses and garnish each with a fresh strawberry.
