Banana Daiquiri

I had some great looking bananas on the counter yesterday and realized I hadn’t posted a recipe for a banana daiquiri yet. So, although it’s early in the morning, I assembled this recipe and snapped a few pics. And then I tried one. Just one, even though the first one tasted like another. Got to get some work done today!

Island Delight

Last weekend I ordered a delicious looking tropical concoction with rum that the bartender called an “Island Delight”. Despite attempts to get the exact recipe before leaving, he would only divulge that it contained OJ, Piña Colada Mix, Malibu Rum and Grenadine. We went back to the office and gave it a couple of “shots” and think we came up with a pretty tasty  mix.
Enjoy, ’cause after all, who couldn’t use a little Island Delight?

Raspberry Mojito

Summertime is fresh fruit and berry time and today’s Mojito is made from one of my favorite berries – the raspberry. I tried it several ways, including using mint and raspberry infused simple syrup, but the following recipe makes such a tasty and refreshing cocktail that I had to choose this one to post!

Raspberry Mojito
(serves 1)

8 fresh mint leaves
8 fresh raspberries
2 tsp turbinado (raw sugar)
Juice of 1  1/2 limes (about 3 tbsp.)
2 0z. white rum
Club Soda
Ice

Muddle the sugar and raspberries until pureed. Add mint leaves and gently muddle until the flavor is released. Add the lime, rum and ice and then fill to the top with club soda. Gently stir. Garnish with lime wheels, mint and a couple of raspberries.

Gosling’s Dark ‘N Stormy

Because today (June 1st) is the official start to the hurricane season, we thought a Goslings Dark ‘N Stormy might be an appropriate drink for the day. Light and refreshing and very easy to make, these are a favorite summer drink around here.
