bananadaiquiriThe basic for any classic Daiquiri are a good Rum and some fresh lime juice. Then comes the other ingredients to make the Daiquiri a drink of your own. In this article we will show you how to make the Banana Daiquiri.

First you will need these ingredients:

– 2 measures of white rum
– 1/2 measure of triple sec
– 1/2 measure of lime juice
– 1/2 measure of light cream
– 1 teaspoon of sugar syrup
– 1/4 of a banana, peeled and sliced
– wedge of lime

What you need to do now is combine the white rum, triple sec, lime juice, cream, sugar syrup, and banana in a blender and blend until its smooth.

Next, just poor the mixture, without straining, into a chilled cocktail glass or a lowball glass and dress with the wedge of lime.

If you want something a little more refreshing add some ice to the blend and you’ll get a great frozen Daiquiri. You can also do this with any of your favorite fruit or combination of fruits. The results will be yours to discover.

However, remember to always squeeze your lemon by hand so that the oils from the peel mix with the juice and impart a sharp, intense flavor to the cocktail.

The History behind the cocktail.

The Daiquiri was invented by an American engineer who was working in Cuba at the turn of the twentieth century. This happened when he one day ran out of gin and he resorted to rum. Some say the Cuban locals had discovered this delicious drink quite some time before him given the prevalence of rum in Cuba.

To be noted, the Daiquiri was also a favorite of American writer Ernest Hemingway and President John F. Kennedy.

So I hope you enjoy this great drink and remember to always drink responsibly.
