Jen's Banana Daiquiri

Day 163


Jen's Banana Daiquiri
4.5 shots out of 5


So I had a few really ripe bananas and decided to skip the banana bread and head straight to the blender and make a Banana Daiquiri.  I'm glad I did!!  This daiquiri was more then called for tonight!

I gave tonight's cocktail 4.5 shots out of 5.  My only complaint.........and it's not really a complaint....is that I wish I had a banana that wasn't as ripe as mine was.  I can taste the difference and would totally have given this cocktail 5 shots out of 5 if my banana wasn't so ripe.  Otherwise, I think I concocted a pretty darn good Banana Daiquiri (rewarding myself with another BIG sip).  As you know I do love the taste of banana in my cocktails and this one is right up my alley.  I'm definitely going to try this one again with a not so ripe banana real soon!  If you do try tonight's cocktail, please let me know what you think, good or bad, I just want to hear what you think about it!

Here is the recipe for Jen's Banana Daiquiri:

  • 1 ripe (but not too ripe) banana
  • 1 Tbs. sugar
  • 2 oz light rum
  • 1/4 oz lime juice
  • 1 oz banana liqueur
In a blender add 1 cup of ice and all of the ingredients above.  Blend until all of the ice is gone and sit back and enjoy!!

Here's to "yet another" scrum-dittily-umptous banana cocktail!

Cheers!!
