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 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 a photo of the end result:

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!
