Banana Daiquiri

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.

Banana Daiquiri
  1. 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.
Recipe Notes


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.
