Cowgirl Coolers | Whiskey Strawberry Daiquiri Cocktail | recipe on FamilyFreshCooking.com

Ever realize that you wished Monday was Friday, but not Friday to be Monday?

Here we go kickin off a new week and I am all ready thinking about the weekend. There have been lots of end ‘o ski season parties here in Telluride. We had a fantastic ski season and are looking forward to a bright and cheerful spring.

For big & little cowgirls and cowboys, I came up with this Cowgirl Cooler cocktail recipe. This strawberry fruit smoothie can be enjoyed as healthy frozen smoothie (alcohol free) or with a whiskey kick.

Let’s saddle up & learn more about this libation. Let’s also pretend that Monday is Friday… or at least dream about it.

You probably figured all my talk about strawberry this ‘n that was leading somewhere…somewhere larger than Strawberry Sauce. Right? Maybe?

Maybe it’s all that rootin tootin gun shootin on the weekends. Maybe it’s ’cause I live in a town filled with Western sass. Did you know Butch Cassidy lived here in Telluride?

He worked on ranches and then proceeded to rob the San Miguel Valley Bank a whopping $21,000.00.

Not a very nice thing to do to the quaint small town you call home!

A splash of Jack Daniels or your favorite whiskey/bourbon is a zinger twist to the usually rum/triple sec daiquiri.

Without the whiskey this puréed fruity drink could be part of a juice cleanse. With it, obviously not.

This is a skinny cocktail, made of pure fruit and sweetened with stevia.

Love the mention of juice cleanse. Yes, did that. That was 2 weeks ago. This week..I’m ready for a cowgirl cooler. Adorable mug and great title!

I know you did that cleanse. The caffeine withdrawal would have had me quite after the first 3 hours ;)

Too cute and so creative, Marla! I’m patiently waiting for local strawberries around here. =)

Those local berries are the best…used to get loads of ‘em in CA. Here in Telluride we will find some teeny tiny wild berries when the weather warms up. Will be fun!

Have you ever tried any other types of whiskey? I’m partial to irish, scotch or canadian, wondering if those would be a good mix? This is a great idea!

Reply

30 Marla April 1, 2013 at 7:28 pm

I say go for it. I also enjoy Jameson and would totally put that in this :) Let me know if you try!

Oh GREAT!! I am so thankful that you found these. Everyone is asking about the cowboy boot glasses. I purchased mine in some small country store years ago & have not a clue what it was called!
