Serve this at a barbecue, on the beach or on the terrace instead of a dessert - in a martini glass for girly glamour
225g (8 oz) strawberries, hulled
1 tsp caster or icing 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 creamy in texture. This is a cocktail you can pour into a jug and serve later, as it keeps its consistency.
