Cocktail of the week: Townsend’s strawberry daiquiri

Strawberries and white rum combine to winning effect in this summer cooler

We came up with this hot-weather refresher to help deal with this summer’s glorious glut of English strawberries.

Strawberry daiquiri
Serves 4

150ml white rum – we use Cabby’s, which is made locally to us in east London
4 tbsp lime juice
400g strawberries, hulled and halved, plus 1 extra strawberry, sliced, to garnish
20 ice cubes

Put everything into a powerful blender or NutriBullet and blend smooth. Pour into four chilled coupe or daiquiri glasses, garnish with slices of strawberry and serve.
