Daiquiri Ice

Daiquiri Ice with Lime Wedge and Mint in white bowl

You might be getting tired of hearing about the brutal Oklahoma heat, but man its hot and it has influenced my cooking habits more than usual this year.  Its hard to cook for the blog when all I want to do is stay cool.  So, I have dusted off my old recipe binder looking for summertime treats that won’t make me wish I wasn’t cooking.

This recipe for daiquiri ice is perfect for what I need today.  I even dusted off the ice cream maker.  I am not all about making homemade ice cream, I only bought an ice cream maker just for making this recipe.

This is a lime run flavored sorbet of sorts.  It is kid friendly since it uses rum flavoring instead of actual rum.

Baskin Robbins used to have Daiquiri Ice as part of their 31 flavors. Of course, it would be Andy’s favorite, and if you have been a follower you already know how this story ends. Either the item one of us loves disappears or we move somewhere that it isn’t available.

Apparently, my husband was not the only husband seeking out daiquiri ice.  Carrie P, over at Garlic is Love, had the same issue in her house and she set out to create her own recipe for Daiquiri Ice. This is one of the few recipes that I own that is used exactly as it was created. No tinkering is necessary with this one. We think she nailed it.

I always use my ice cream maker, so I’m not sure how it would turn out without one.  Might be worth a shot to use any freezer method from any sorbet recipe that does not use an ice cream maker.
