Why Choose Vodka?

Many prefer vodka for their daiquiris because it doesn't have as prominent a flavor as rum. Vodka is similar to light rum both because of its more mild flavor and because it is clear, but the mash used to make vodka does not contain molasses or sugarcane, yielding a relatively flavorless liquor. A strawberry daiquiri made with vodka can easily become a favorite. You can try many different ingredients to come up with a signature cocktail recipe that is truly unique.

Strawberry Daiquiris Forever

Strawberry daiquiris have a dewy rich flavor, and by using vodka the strawberry flavors are uninhibited. Consider this spirit swap the next time you go to shake a drink, you might just find a strawberry daiquiri with vodka is your new favorite daiquiri.
