I was looking forward to trying this months selection from Veronica of Supermarket Serenade She chose Mango Banana Daiquiris as the 1st Ina Garten recipe for the month of August. These were super simple to make. I threw everything into my blender and started it up. My kitchen Aide blender made a funny sound and stopped working. I took the blender off to find that all of the black rubber had been worn off the bottom. After 11 years of always being there for me, it finally broke! I guess this means that I get to choose a color that is NOT cobalt blue.
I ended up making the drinks in the food processer and they turned out fine. I skipped the simple syrup step and bought simple syrup from Trader Joes. I think it was a little too much rum for me but then I usually only have a half a glass of wine with dinner. You can check out Barefoot Bloggers to see their take on this drink.
