A refreshing strawberry and white rum cocktail which slips down dangerously easily in warm weather.
225g (8 oz) strawberries, hulled
1 tsp caster sugar
120ml (4 fl oz) white rum
2 tbsp lime juice, freshly squeezed
4 scoops of strawberry ice-cream
150ml (5 fl oz) sparkling water
Place all the ingredients in the blender and whizz until the mixture becomes luscious, pink and uniform in texture.
