Strawberry-Pomegranate Daiquiri

I find that I have not wanted to cook, bake or do anything that requires being indoors. It has been gorgeous outside! 70 degrees and no humidity. Green, lush, full of spring colors and flowers.
The perfect day for a strawberry iced beverage. Combine the strawberries with some pomegranate juice, a few tablespoons of honey and some good rum and you have a great end to a beautiful day.

Strawberry-Pomegranate Daiquiri
Serves 3-4

8 whole strawberries
8 ounces pomegranate juice
4 tbsp. honey
4-6 ounces good rum
2 cups ice
Blend all ingredients together in a blender until smooth. Dip glass in water and rim with sugar. Pour into glass and garnish with fresh mint. Take your yummy beverage, go outside and play with your kids! (or dog)

How could you resist a smile like this?

He is so determined to keep up with the big boys!

Who would want to be inside cooking on a day like this?

I love the colors! and the thought of sipping on this...

I made something yesterday and kept adding wine to get a pink color for the photo, but I realize it has to be pure and not a mixed...as I wanted some color in my dish...

Selba said...

Awww... what a cute smile :)

This sounds like a delicious drink for a nice day! It's actually really hot here, so I could go for one of those right about now.

Okay, it "officially" NOT FAIR to use such adorable children in your blog posts! Where do I rent me some of those? GREG

Sarah said...

Greg-
They are absolutely adorable aren't they! It's hard not to put them in every single post, but I restrain myself :)

Sarah said...

sara- Sorry to hear it's so warm there, 1,2 maybe three drinks would be good!;0

Chef E said...

Gee I did forget to tell you how adorable your kids are :) Greg is too funny!

Jamie said...

That drink looks so good and so cool! And those kids are so cute! But is that really outside your house? Wow that really is beautiful!

Sarah said...

Yes, it is outside our house. We live in a older area of the city where there's lots of mature trees and the neighborhhod takes pride in their lawns and landscaping.

This drink looks beautiful and sounds quite refreshing.

Nice looking adult frosty beverage!

But most importantly, THANK YOU for making your kids wear helmets! My 9 y/o tried to take off without his tonight....I made him stop and come back:)

Beautiful photography! Much better to be outside on a nice day than inside cooking.

Great drink - just the thing to usher in summer (when the weather finally cooperates)! Your children are lovely and I can't blame you for getting out of the kitchen when they're waiting for you outside on a gorgeous day!
