Mango Banana Daiquiris (From Back to Basics by Ina Garten)
- 2 cups chopped ripe mango (1 to 2 mangoes, peeled and seeded) (Oddly, I couldn't find fresh mangoes, so I used frozen.)
- 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 (I used coconut run, 'cause that's what I had.)
- Mango slices, for serving (Or mint!)
Place the mango, banana, lime juice, sugar syrup, and rum in a blender and process until smooth. (Alternatively, use a stick blender.) 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.
