Happy Friday Night

We picked more strawberries than we could eat this week! I made homemade frozen strawberry daiquiris and shrimp cocktail for our Friday night ritual. (Our ritual is to put the kids to bed and then enjoy a cocktail and appetizer and catch up on the week together.)

1/4 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
1/4 cup lemon rum
1/4 cup light rum
1/2 cup sugar
2 big handfuls of fresh strawberries
2-21/2 cups of ice

Put it all in the blender and puree until smooth.  I rimmed the glasses by turning them up on the juice squeezer, dampening the rim with the lemon juice, and then dipped them in a small bowl of sugar.  Garnish with whipped cream and a fresh strawberry.  Cheers!

I'm sorry, but it's not possible to pick more strawberries than you can eat. My kids devoured 1 pound of them in under five minutes this morning.
