Frozen Banana Daiquiri

I am sitting on a beach staring off into the horizon with a Frozen Banana Daiquiri in hand. It will be sunset soon, my favorite time of the day and I am daydreaming about what the future holds. Will I remain in paradise and spend my days typing away describing my latest refreshing umbrella drink? Or maybe head to Europe and live the good life eating my way through Italy?

So many options, so many decisions!! What’s a girl to do? I know, teach you how to make a Frozen Banana Daiquiri. I am still not exactly sure how I stumbled upon my very first banana daiquiri, I just remember making them in high school….and then college…..

Not too sweet, not too tart, just a perfect combination of refreshing and frothy goodness in a glass…..with a cute umbrella, of course. 😉 Goldilocks would definitely approve!

Traditional Daiquiris are not blended, they are simply stirred like a martini. I am a blender girl, I like creamy, dreamy drinks that the guys would never be caught dead ordering, lol. Thankfully, someone created the Frozen Banana Daiquiri about 50 years ago at St. Thomas’ Mountaintop Bar in the U.S. Virgin Islands…..with me in mind, I’m sure!

Simply pour the crushed ice, sugar, white rum, orange liqueur {Cointreau/Triple Sec}, lime juice and a banana into a blender…..

Puree until smooth. Pour into a tall cocktail glass and garnish with a maraschino cherry for a traditional look. I added a lime wedge and umbrella to remind me of cool, salty breezes, crystal blue waters, and warm sand between my toes…..where I wish I was sitting right now.

Happy April Fool’s Day! 😉 Boy do I wish that I was actually sitting on the beach in St. Thomas right now, ordering these delicious cocktails from a cute cabana boy!!

If bananas aren’t your thing, maybe you would prefer a Mango Margarita…..

    I do like an occasional drink, but don’t like the powder mixes.

    I love your fresh recipes. Once you have a fresh drink, you get spoiled and never want a powdered one again.

    My signature drink is a Mojito. I only make them during the summer months when I have fresh mint.

    MMmmmm how delicious. And if that first sentence is true I’m so super jealous at the moment. It’s cold here. And rainy. And I’m over it!!! haha. I love a good daiquiri and banana sounds even better!! The hubby and I always throw a banana into our strawberry daiquiris and it adds just the right amount of banana flavor. I’ve got a link up going on today and every Thursday called Thursty Thursday. I would love it if you stopped by and linked this up!! Hope to see you!! Cheers!! hopelesslyeverafter.blogspot.com
