    These were a HUGE hit! I used fresh berries and a banana rum...so good! I let them sit out for about 5 minutes at room temp and then used a fork to "slush" them up a bit prior to serving.

    I was very surprised to be as disappointed as i was with this recipe. From the few ingredients that go into it, it looks like it could be delicious. The taste of this is in no way, on any level appealing. I love Strawberry Daiquiris, but this recipes tastes very much like chemical-y plastic. All of my guests agreed. I used fresh berries and Bacardi Rum. It just is not a very good recipe at all.
