Cocktail Recipes: Very Banana Daiquiri

The very first time I prepared a banana daiquiri, I created one for myself. I love daiquiris in general, however; I absolutely love bananas. The combination of the daiquiri and it's original ingredients with this amazing fruit has definitely increased my love for both, as a result.

The daiquiri is one of the very few popular drinks today that can be originated to fit your acquired taste. The original banana daiquiri ingredients include: Rum, Triple Sec., Lime Juice, Sugar, and Banana. I decided to create an original banana daiquiri that allows you to use an array of liqueurs, cordials, and liquors.
