barefoot bloggers ~ mango banana daiquiris

This weeks Barefoot Bloggers recipe arrived in my email box just in time. Veronica @ Supermarket Serenade chose Mango Banana Daiquiris from Barefoot Contessa's Back to Basics Cookbook. It has been so hot here lately, that this tall tasty beverage hit the spot. Well done Veronica! Nice choice.

So take a moment, bring out the blender and take a trip to the Bahamas imagining white sand and blue water. Ahhh the life!! Check out Barefoot Bloggers for more recipes and helpful hints with the recipes selected.

Mango Banana Daiquiris
recipe from Ina Garten

2 cups chopped ripe mango (1 to 2 mangos, peeled and seeded)
1 ripe banana, chopped
1/2 cup fresh squeezed lime juice (4 limes)
1/4 cup sugar syrup*
1 1/4 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 simple syrup, heat 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water in a small saucepan until the sugar dissolves. Chill.

J gives it a thumbs up!! Yuummm!!
