BB: Mango Banana Daiquiri

Finally! A recipe for Barefoot Bloggers that calls for booze! This is a delicious new option for our summer adult beverage repertoire.

Mango Banana Daiquiris
Source: Ina Garten, Back to Basics on page 47
Chosen by Veronica of Supermarket Serenade
Serves 4

2 cups chopped ripe mango (1 to 2 mangos, peeled and seeded)
1 ripe banana, chopped
1/2 cup fresh squeezed lime juice (4 limes)
1/4 cup sugar syrup* (I used 2-3 tablespoons of agave nectar)
1 1/4 cups dark rum, such as Mount Gay

Mango slices, for serving

Place the mango, banana, lime juice, sugar syrup, and rum in a blender and process until smooth. Add 2 cups of ice and process again until smooth and thick. Serve ice-cold in highball glasses with the mango slices.

*To make simple syrup, heat 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water in a small saucepan until the sugar dissolves. Chill.

I like that you used agave nectar. I am thinking of using honey once I do make these daiquiris. Looks so good!!

Your photo looks so pretty - I love the agave nectar tip as well.

Veronica said...

Great picture!! I'm glad you liked them...we needed a drink don't you think?

I used agave nectar too--so much easier and better than sugar syrup. Your drinks look great!
