Banana Mango Daiquris!


Took a break from organizing our inventory today for a summer drink break in the yard. Ever since we spotted Ina Garten's Banana Mango Daiquri recipe in her Back to Basics cookbook we have been dying to try it out.

It was so good we just had to share the recipe. A must try before summer is over!

Mango Banana Daiquris (Back to Basics by Ina Garten)
2 cups chopped ripe mango (1 to 2 mangoes, peeled and seeded)
1 ripe banana, chopped
½ cup freshly squeezed lime juice (4 limes)
¼ cup sugar syrup (see Note)
1¼ 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 sugar syrup, heat 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water in a small saucepan until the sugar dissolves. Chill
