The drinks can include any fruit, whether you prefer lime daiquiris, mango daiquiris, lemon daiquiris, pineapple daiquiris, or any other fruit that you can think of even though this particular recipe included strawberries. There are machines that make it so that no one has to manually pulverize the ice, but can manufacture large quantities of daiquiri at one time, of any flavor that you choose.
