Bahama Bob's Banana Daiquiri

Here is a fun idea for that hot summer evening.  I like my daiquiri's on the aft deck about sunset and here is one that you might find very interesting.  Great daiquiri flavor with just a nice notes of banana.

Bahama Bob's Banana Daiquiri   

  • 2. Oz. Doorly's White Rum
  • Juice of 1/2 Lime
  • 3/4 Oz. Bahama Bob's Whole Banana Syrup

Place all ingredients in a ice filled shake and shake until chilled.  Strain into a rocks glass filled with fresh ice.  Float a couple of banana coins as a garnish

Bahama Bob’s Whole Banana Syrup
  • 1 Cup of Sugar in the Raw
  • ¾ Cup of Water
  • 1 Whole Banana (slice into coins and save the peel)
  • 1/8 Tsp. Allspice

Place the sugar, water and banana coins in a pan and heat at about 425 degrees stirring until it reaches a full boil.  Lower temperature to 275 and allow to slow boil for about 5 more minutes, crush the banana coins with the spoon as they soften up and keep stirring slowly.  Remove from the heat and strain into an appropriate vessel and let stand.  Now place a cup of water back in the pan and lay the peels after cutting off the stem and black end off.  Bring to a boil then lower temp to 275 and allow to boil for another 5 minutes.  Strain the liquid into the syrup and stir it in.   Allow it to cool and ready to use.
