Strawberry Daiquiri Doughnuts

When I first made my Mojito Doughnuts, I thought ‘I bloomin love this idea, I wonder what other cocktails I could do?’ So my mini series was born, this cocktail is one of my favourites. Mainly because I didn’t drink for a very long time, I still don’t really. But it was my go to un-alcoholic cocktail. These doughnuts can easily be made without the rum, they still make a delicious strawberry based dessert. I have alternated the toppings, with one being a glaze and the other a lime sugar. So you can either make both or choose one, both are delicious. I secretly hope you try both.
