What do you do when a friend stops by - right at cocktail hour, of course - unexpectedly and with her new boyfriend to boot?
OK, first you grumble that you look like a hobo because you were working on your new jewelry line in you baggy art clothes and you're covered in glue and paint and little bits of jewelry pieces. BUT, then you grab that bag of frozen strawberries and bananas you originally bought for smoothies and a bottle of rum, plug in the blender and whip them up a delicious daiquiri, that's what you do.
And that's what I did. I even plopped a nice little dollop of whipped cream on top.
Oh, and did I mention she sat down and said, "It's been a bad day. Make 'em really strong!" So I did. (You might wanna cut down the rum by half.)
I'm such a good friend. But she did bring me a cute little rose tea light for my troubles.
3 Cups of Frozen Bananas and Strawberries
(Or 2 Cups of Fresh Strawberries and 2 Bananas)
3 Tbsp. Fresh Lime Juice
1 Cup Bacardi Light Rum
1 Cup Ice Cubes
Garnish: Whipped Cream Topping
Glass: Whatever you want to put it in. People who stop by unexpectedly gets what they gets!
Toss all the ingredients in the blender and pulse until smooth and creamy. I always add the more liquid ingredients first to keep stress off my blender motor.
Pour into your glasses, plop on the whipped cream and sit back like the excellent host that you are.
Of course Bailey was there - there was booze and guests involved!
