These frozen daiquiris get theirflavor from frozen sweet cherries, cherry juice, and a splash of lime juice. They forgo the red dye and artificial cherry flavor that you might see in some“cherry flavored” drinks. We have real cherry flavor in ever delicious sip!

Rum adds the classic flavor to these daiquiris, and let me tell you, they are dangerously delicious!

Speaking of dyes and artificial flavors, these floats remind me of one one of my favorite childhood treats – a cherry Mr. Misty Float from Dairy Queen. Do you guys remember those?

Our annual family Labor Day trip to my aunt and uncle’s house in Arizona always includedseveral trips to Dairy Queen. I consistentlyordereda red cherry slushie made into a float with a swirl of vanilla soft serve. It was SO good! Icy, creamy, tangy andsweet, and (incidentally) loaded with lots of bright red food coloring. Ha!
