Mangana Daiquiri

Day 63


Mangana Daiquiri
5 shots out of 5


Holy yummy daiquiri I created!!  I'm liking this cocktail a whole lot!  Another great creation using my purees!!  I think these two purees are my favorite ones so far.  I think that's so because  raspberry is such a common flavor in cocktails and my peach puree........well....I still haven't figured out how to get it's flavor to pop yet.

I gave tonight's cocktail 5 shots out of 5.  I am absolutely loving this cocktail!  It's got a good blend of the mango puree and the banana puree.  The two DO compliment each other quite well, I must say!  Um, is it summer yet?  I really need to be sitting out in my backyard sipping on this cocktail!  Actually I have quite a line up of cocktails that I have blogged about that I would like to be sitting in my backyard sipping on, like the Blue HawaiianBack Porch BreezeChi Chi and quite a few more I just can't think of right now (perhaps this Mangana Daiquiri is why?).  I hope some of you try this cocktail and tell me what you think of it!

Here's the recipe for the Mangana Daiquiri:

  • 1 1/2 shots coconut rum
  • 1 shot mango puree
  • 1 shot banana puree
In a blender add 1 cup of ice, coconut rum, mango puree and banana puree.  Blend them up well so that the ice is gone.  Pour and enjoy!!

Here is a photo of the end result:

Cheers to summer being that much closer to being here!!  Hope you all had a great day!

Cheers!

  1. I'm going to have to see if I can find some of those fruit purees. Not having them is creating a damper on my experimentation :) Did you find them at your liquor store?

  2. Haha, I got them at BevMo. We have quite a few of them around here, but I'm not sure if they're in all different states/countries or not. Here's their website www.bevmo.com I know they ship items out online too. I haven't found these purees in my local grocery store. I have not looked at smaller liquor stores either, I usually go to BevMo b/c they're the go-to store for just about everything alcohol related.

    1. No BevMos here (Charleston, WV)but I will check out the big liquor store to see what they have in the way of mixers. They may have some. Otherwise I'm going to have to order some :)
