Forget that awful corn syrup laden; spawn of a chemistry set daiquiri mix. Here is a recipe that hearkens back to the true roots of the drink and is already a regular in our rotation:
Put 1/2 to 3/4 oz freshly squeezed lime juice, 1 heaping tablespoon sugar, 2 ounces of light rum, and 1 cup of cracked ice into a blender. Add half a ripe banana (finally another use for them besides banana bread!) and blend until smooth. The proper way is to strain the mixture into a chilled glass but we prefer to just dump the whole thing into a glass for a more frozen style. This recipe doubles, triples or quadruples very nicely as long as your blender can hold it!
Anyone else find they drink more liquor in the summer months than winter? What with mojitios, caipirinhas, margaritas and now daiquiris I know I sure do. Winter is really just time for wine and ales.
