{Copycat} Baskin Robbins Daiquiri Ice {Ice Cream}

Daiquiri Ice is my all-time favorite ice cream flavor.  That pastel green one from Baskin Robbins that looks like lime sherbet only tastes 10,000 times better?  When Little Devil was little, we would head out to Baskin Robbins after supper for dessert.  She would always order strawberry.  I would always order Daiquiri Ice.  Then she would repeatedly ask my for a bite of my ice cream.  Leaving me with a dripping sticky cone of strawberry ice cream that I hated.  Finally her dad told her, "You order Daiquiri Ice.  If you order something else do not ask your mother for a bite of hers."  So she fell in love with Daiquiri Ice too.  It's been years since we've had a Baskin Robbins location in my town.  When Michaela from An Affair of the Heart posted this recipe, I was so excited.  (Coincidentally, it is Michaela's favorite too, so I knew it would as close to the real thing as it could get.)  Now we can have Daiquiri Ice whenever we want.  And I don't have to share mine with Little Devil.
I can assure you our serving sizes
were considerably larger than this photo.
It was so hard to be patient while it froze.
I love my ice cream freezer.
I keep the bowl insert in the deep freeze
so we can make this whenever we want!

My all-time favorite flavor!
What's yours?

{Copycat} Baskin Robbins Daiquiri Ice {Ice Cream}
From: An Affair From The Heart

6 cups water
3 cups granulated sugar
juice of 3 limes squeezed
3 teaspoons rum extract
2-4 teaspoons citric acid (or Fruit Fresh)
3 drops green food coloring

In a pan on the stove, heat sugar and water just until sugar melts.  Remove from heat and add 1½ teaspoons citric acid. Stir until dissolved.  Let mixture cool for a few minutes and add rum extract, lime juice and food coloring.  Taste, and add more citric acid powder as needed, a ½ teaspoon at a time. The citric acid will be what gives this recipe it's tartness. The amount you will need will vary based also on the tartness of your limes.  Refrigerate until chilled.  Place into an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer's directions.  Place in a covered container and freeze until fully solid.
