Victoria's Pride Parade is happening this weekend! Vancouver's Pride Parade is at the end of the month! Let's all celebrate with some Strawberry Daiquiri Macarons! The butter cream filling for our latest flavour is full of strawberry, lime and rum, creating a juicy and ever-so-slightly boozy treat, with some fantastically fun, rainbow-y colours to match.
The mood we were going for was kind of.... this:
The sun is meant to make an appearance soon but even if it doesn't, you can create your own happy rays with a boxful of these (what better way to fuel up for the fun?), and maybe even a blender full of the beverage itself. Daiquiris kind of seem like they would be one of the more complicated drinks to make but they're actually as simple as a your morning smoothie. They're basically like... an evening smoothie. Or afternoon smoothie, even. It is the weekend, after all, and we are celebrating :)
Here's a quick recipe for you.
1/2 cup crushed ice
5 large strawberries
2 ounces light rum
2 teaspoons sugar
1/2 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
Put all of the ingredients in a blender and pulse until well mixed with no chunks of ice. Pour into a large, chilled glass. Serve immediately.
See what we mean? Easy peasy! Happy Pride, everyone!! These treats will be available for the full month of July.
