Banana Daiquiris

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.

  4. Having read this I believed it was very informative.
    I appreciate you finding the time and effort to put this article together.
    I once again find myself personally spending way too much
    time both reading and leaving comments. But so what, it was still worthwhile!

  5. I leave a response when I like a article on a site or I have something to add
    to the conversation. It’s caused by the fire communicated in the post I read.
    And after this article Banana Daiquiris | Fred Foodie- Eating and Drinking in and
    around Frederick, Maryland. I was actually excited enough to drop a thought :
    ) I do have a couple of questions for you if it’s allright.
    Is it only me or do some of the remarks look as if they are coming from brain dead people?
    😛 And, if you are writing at additional online social sites,
    I’d like to keep up with everything fresh you have to post.
