Strawberry Watermelon Daiquiri Recipe

This strawberry watermelon daiquiri recipe is super easy to make and a delicious cocktail recipe for anytime. Made with simply yummy ingredients, you will love this drink!

It’s been a while since I’ve been on a beach–as a matter of fact, I think about my trip to St. Lucia at the end of last year–a lot. The ambiance was amazing, the beaches were beautiful and to be honest I had absolutely no worries as I sipped my beachy drink in my cabana.

Strawberry Watermelon Daiquiri: A Refreshing Twist on a Classic

Imagine sipping on a vibrant blend of strawberries, watermelon, spiced rum, and a touch of lime juice. With the optional sugar rim, this Strawberry Watermelon Daiquiri is a refreshing and tantalizing cocktail that will elevate your summer soirées and poolside hangouts.


Can I Use Frozen Fruit?

Yes, you can! Frozen strawberries and watermelon will give your daiquiri a thicker texture and eliminate the need for too much ice, which can dilute the flavor.

How Can I Make it Non-Alcoholic?

You can easily replace spiced rum with coconut water or a splash of pineapple juice to keep the tropical vibe.

Tips and Tricks

  • Optional Sugar Rim: Before blending, use a lime wedge to moisten the rim of your glass and then dip it in sugar for an extra sweet touch.
  • Quality Rum: The choice of rum can make or break your daiquiri. Opt for a good-quality spiced rum to elevate your cocktail.
  • Blender Speed: Start at a low speed and gradually increase to high to ensure a well-blended daiquiri.

I vowed to myself that I’d be better at creating these types of delicious drinks at home. It was just such a yummy treat and I wanted to be able to recreate that magic!


  • Tropical Twist: Add a slice of pineapple for a tropical variation.
  • Berry Delight: Mix in some blueberries or raspberries to add another layer of fruitiness.
  • Virgin Daiquiri: Replace the rum with ginger ale or lemon-lime soda for a kid-friendly version.

Where to Serve

This delicious daiquiri is perfect for any occasion that calls for a bit of whimsy and refreshment—think pool parties, beachside lounging, or even as a delightful pre-dinner aperitif.


Daiquiris are best enjoyed immediately. However, you can store any leftover cocktail in an airtight container in the freezer. To re-serve, let it thaw slightly and give it a good stir or another quick blend.

What Ingredients Do You Need To Make A Strawberry Watermelon Daiquiri?

All you need is sweetened lime juice, fresh strawberries, spiced rum and chopped watermelon. All of the perfect summer flavors! Plus it’s a really pretty drink to have on a girls night, a movie night or even simply on the patio in a moment of relaxation.
