- This recipe has found an ingenious solution to the problem of premature meltage, which is a particular problem on hot summer days—exactly when this is the most perfect drink imaginable.
1 pint strawberries, hulled and quartered
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1/2 cup light rum
3 tablespoons triple sec
In a sturdy sealable plastic bag combine the strawberries, the sugar and the lime juice, seal the bag, forcing out the excess air, and knead the mixture lightly until the sugar is dissolved. Freeze the mixture until it is solid. In a blender blend the frozen strawberry mixture, broken into pieces, the rum, the triple sec, and 1/3 cup water until the mixture is smooth and divide the mixture among 4 long-stemmed glasses. Serves 4.
