There were lots of strawberries close to the ground already gathering mold, and it took quite a while to pick a basket full of good ones. Since fresh, local strawberries will be coming to an end soon, I thought I'd post one last seasonal recipe for them. This time it's a special, once-in-a-while treat — a strawberry daiquiri that's just as good without the rum as it is with it. This isn't a traditional strawberry daiquiri recipe; it's got a few things added. It's taken from Allrecipes.com. Ingredients 6 cups ice 1/2 cup white sugar 4 ounces fresh or frozen strawberries 1/8 cup lime juice 1/2 cup lemon juice 3/4 cup rum (leave out for the kids, of course, or anyone who wants an alcohol-free version) 1/4 cup lemon-lime flavored carbonated beverage (try to chose one made without high fructose corn syrup) Directions Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into glasses - frosted mugs would add to the fun for the kids - and enjoy.
