BB: Mango Banana Daiquiris

Veronica from Supermaket Serenade chose our first August recipe for the Barefoot Bloggers group. This Mango Banana Daiquiris was such a perfect drink for a warm August day and I was thrilled & were looking forward to try it this month. Unfortunately, neither Red nor I were very thrilled with the flavor of this drink, I don’t know why. We felt like maybe our mango wasn’t ripe enough? I’d be interested to hear what other people think!

I do must say though, the dark rum that I used in this recipe reminded me of Jamaica & that wasn’t a bad thing! Cheers!

    Sorry you weren’t loving this one! It probably was a ripeness issue with your mango. I’m making it this weekend, but I’m using frozen mango.

    too bad yours didn’t come out so well. it looks good. The key is having a really ripe juicy sweet mango so that’s probably it. I used frozen.
