Swing'n Banana Daiquiri

Day 24


Swing'n Banana Daiquiri
5 shots out of 5


OK, so I'm a little bias, but for good reason!  I created tonight's cocktail myself......so of course I'm gonna make it so that I LOVE it!!  When I was at the liquor store buying more bottles of alcohol I walked by the Finest Call section and saw a bunch of different flavors to choose between.  My goal is to make these cocktails with out using pre-made drink mixes, such as a Piña Colada mix (I'd rather mix the pineapple juice and cream of coconut myself), so instead I went for the Puree's. I chose the Banana Puree and the Mango Puree.

I decided that I was going to make a blended cocktail tonight.  I guess I was in the mood to pull out my blender and give it a whirl (pun intended).  So I decided to make my version of a Banana Daiquiri.  I'm sure there are other versions out there, but I wanted to know that I was going to love it, so I made it myself.

I gave tonight's cocktail 5 shots out of 5.  I really enjoy blended drinks, I do like the flavor of banana and the ingredients together made it taste great!  I am hoping that at the end of this year, I will be able to create my own drinks by knowing what goes with what and how much of each ingredient to use.

Here is the recipe for MY Swing'n Banana Daiquiri:

  • 1 1/2 shots of rum
  • 1 shot Banana Puree
  • 1/2 shot cream of coconut
  • 3 shots pineapple juice

In a blender, put 1 cup of ice, rum, banana puree, cream of coconut and pineapple juice.  Blend it up so that there are no little pieces of ice left, just a complete liquid.  Pour into a margarita glass and enjoy!!

This is the first banana flavored cocktail I've EVER had, and I must say it's a pretty good one!  Enjoy!
