Peach Daiquiri

Oh my gosh this one is good. we like a peach or two each year when they are really in season, and after picking up a few really good looking ones from the store yesterday, we wondered about using them in a Daiquiri. There are a few recipes that sounded pretty good on the internet, but we opted for something easy and this recipe variation was just that. Cold and refreshing, it definitely tastes like summertime! Enjoy!

Cruzan Beach Umbrella

Always on the lookout for new rum concoctions to try, we thought this recipe from Cruzan Rum would be worthy of a mix – not only because of the ingredients, but the beachy name! The citrus flavors are wonderful summertime quenchers and the Cruzan Orange Rum and orange juice compliment the bold flavor of the Cruzan Blackstrap float. So pour one up, head to the beach and enjoy a taste of summertime!!

Banana Mango Tango

Memorial Day is traditionally the kick-off for summer so with that we thought we should spend some time this weekend concocting some new summertime rum drinks.  We assessed the array of bottles in the liquor cabinet, went to the store and purchased a few more, then set out to create a new summertime favorite.

After a few less than stellar entries, we came up with what we felt was a winner that we’ll enjoy and  serve to some of our guests this summertime! We felt the banana and mango “tangoed” nicely together in this light and refreshing drink. So now, we introduce to you the Rum Therapy Banana Mango Tango!

Banana Mango Tango

 Banana Mango Tango
(serves 2)

3 oz. Cruzan Mango Rum
1/2 c. pineapple juice
1/4 peeled mango
1/2 large banana
1/2 oz. Cruzan Black Strap Rum

Blend the mango, banana, pineapple juice and Cruzan Mango Rum in a blender. Add approximately 1 cup of ice and blend until smooth. Pour into glasses. Float 1/4 oz. Cruzan Black Strap Rum on top of each drink and garnish with banana slices.

Unfortunately, we were unable to secure some Cruzan  Banana Rum in time for our summertime session. I would love to try a variation of this recipe by using 2 oz. Cruzan Mango Rum and 1 oz. Cruzan Banana Rum. We’ll give it a try and write a report once we can get our hands on a bottle! Hurray! It’s summertime!
