Just because it’s December doesn’t mean that only eggnog is on the cocktail menu. You’ve heard of “Christmas in July?” Well, now Drink of the Week is starting Summer in December by sharing some of our favorite tropical drinks.
Bananas have that tropical flair but are available all year.
This simple banana daiquiri isn’t thick or overly sweet — a common problem with many blended drinks. Instead it’s light and refreshing. Oh, and it doesn’t skimp on the booze either.
So let’s forget about the rain and celebrate with a tropical December!
- 2 oz white rum
- juice of half a lime
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 cup crushed ice
- Half a fresh banana
Put all ingredients in the blender and blend until smooth (probably about 30 seconds). Strain into chilled cocktail glasses. This recipe serves one, so increase accordingly to serve more.
