Friday Afternoon Kocktail time! Made up a slushy Strawberry-Banana Morgan cocktail, was really really good!
– 3 oz Captain Morgan’s Spiced Rum
– 3 oz Banana Liqueuer
– a whole container of Fresh Strawberries (reserve a few whole ones with their green tops for deco), washed and cut up (put them in the freezer for an hour or two)
– Lots of Ice (2-3 cups)
In a blender, add the very cold strawberries and blend until pureed (if you want, I pressed them through a sieve, cuz I don’t appreciate the seeds stuck in my teeth!). Return the strawberries to the blender if you pressed them and throw in the Spiced Rum, Banana Liqueur and the ice (I like lots of ice, I used more than a cup, probably 2.5 cups). Blend and blend away. Once it is thoroughly blended pour into some pretty glasses and decorate with your whole strawberries….P-R-E-T-T-Y!! and yummers to boot!
What’s better than hitting the poolside after a 3 hour bike ride…. DRINKS!! I came up with a concoction of a drink that quenched my thirst delightfully (heeheehee). I am calling it the “Latin Lover” … It’s a very simple recipe that calls for Rum…Mango…Rum…Strawberry…Rum and oh yeah the secret ingredient… R-U-M!!!
