A Seven Jars Special Recipe
Daiquiri Okay, here is one instance where the Bootlegger’s Version truly differs from the classic cocktail in a big way. We still use our elite Seven Jars Rum, but we also break down and use a blender. The original recipe calls for mashing a banana, adding shaved ice and the other ingredients; while you can certainly still do that, virtually everyone has a blender these days, so why not take advantage of it? You will note that this is actually a close cousin to the Pina Colada, but instead of pineapple juice this one uses lime juice, keeping it in the Daiquiri family.
Add all of the ingredients into a blender. Fill approximately 1/2 way with ice. Blend until smooth, usually about 1 minute. Pour into a tall highball glass and serve. The amount of ice you use will actually dictate how much of and end product you create; if you fill the blender all the way up with ice, be sure to double the ingredients.
We have a truly FANTASTIC recipe for a Banana Rum. Like all of our products, the banana rum recipe uses real fruit (in this instance bananas, obviously); but real fruit provides a challenge. It absorbs the alcohol, making the end product much lower proof. There are ways around this, but in the instance of banana flavor there is one major impediment: you cannot juice a banana. The banana rum recipe left to us is outstanding, BUT we have not been able to reproduce the flavor, keep the proof where we want it AND not have a good bit of the banana pulp in the rum; so keep in mind that we are still working on this one. In the meantime, this banana daiquiri recipe should hold you banana lovers over.
