Banana Daiquiri Cocktail Recipe

The daiquiri is generally credited to an iron miner who was entertaining guests in Cuba. The story goes that one Jennings Cox improvised the drink on the fly to entertain his guests one night when he ran out of gin, and he ended up concocting the fruit-infused sensation that is now enjoyed worldwide.

This is contested, however, as some claim that a restauranteur by the name of Conrad Graves is the true inventor. Regardless of whoever invented the daiquiri, it is a drink that is now synonymous with the summer, islands, and beaches. Whether the destination is Jamaica or New Orleans, a daiquiri is a free-spirited drink often associated with vacation.

Ingredients:

  • 1 banana (preferably ripe)
  • 2 ounces of rum (dark or light, your preference)
  • 1 lime
  • Ice
  • Banana liqueur

Preparation:

  1. Place the banana, rum, ice, and liqueur into the blender.
  2. Squeeze the juice from the lime.
  3. Blend it all together.
  4. Pour out a banana daiquiri!

Equipment:

  • Blender
  • Knife (For the lime)

Banana daiquiris are a perfect way to spend the summer sipping on something sweet and isn’t hard to make, which comes in handy when you’ve had a couple. The sweet combination of the banana mixes perfectly with the sour lime to create a zesty drink that may not sound like it mixes perfectly – but trust us, it does. Of course, you can always add simple syrup or honey to your banana daiquiri, or use less lime, to customize just how sweet or sour you want your banana daiquiri to taste. Also, if banana pulp isn’t your thing – feel free to use daiquiri mix. Crushed ice, just like with any daiquiri, makes the blending process much quicker – which comes in handy if you’re trying to prepare a dozen at a time for a summer barbecue or cocktail party. Drink responsibly!
