Frozen Daiquiri Cocktail review
Our ratings (1-5 🍸)
We used to get frozen mango daiquiris at a little beach hut in St. Maarten but the hut blew away a few hurricanes ago. We also enjoyed frozen lime daiquiris while staying at the Hotel Nacional de Cuba in Havana a few years ago. The back of the hotel overlooks the ocean and it is a lovely, historic location to enjoy cocktails. The icy drinks are long gone, but the memories remain.
Memories aside, we gave the Bacardi Cocktail and the non-frozen Daiquiri 5🍸s, but both of us rarely order frozen drinks – at the finish, they can end up a bit watery. So, 4🍸s for the frozen version.
