Having a couple of drinks with the wife can difficult sometimes. You see, I’m a beer snob (a music snob, and a football snob as well) and like my “craft” beer. The wife does not like beer one bit. Wine is good, but we can only do that every once and awhile. So if we are going to have a couple of drinks together, we have to get creative! One I have found is kinda trendy, a Mojito Slushy. I have even come up with a few drinks of my own like Onion Juice. I have also come up with a frozen fruity drink that is very versatile. I call it a Caribbean Blizzard.
This is what you need:
3 cups frozen strawberries
2 frozen bananas cut into slices
Juice of 2 limes (or 1 lemon)
¼ cup Triple Sec
½ cup Light Rum
Add the ingredients into a blender and mix. There is enough for two “drinks” when put into a margarita glass. You may have to add more water (or rum/triple sec) if you like yours a little thinner. I don’t mind eating mine with a spoon. These are really good, though, so you have to be careful. The great thing about this one is you can change the ingredients to fit what you like or, more importantly, what you have. As long as you have the two frozen bananas, the lime/lemon juice, 3 cups frozen fruit, and an additional 1 and ½ cup liquid, you can make anything! We have made this with watermelon, OJ, with no booze. You can add tequila instead of rum. You can even add dark rum if you like. The only limit is your palate (and your pantry/freezer).
