Today I got a lot of things done. I decided to celebrate with a drink. I looked around the apartment, and noticed a few things that might be worth using: a banana that was a tad over ripe, half a lime left in the fridge from last weekend’s cooking, a bottle of cheap Mexican dark rum, etc. I figured, “Let’s experiment!”
The results are decent, but not fantastic. I imagine the drink would be better if it consumed on a beach in warm weather, not in a dreary January night. Hence the name: the Wrong Season.
- One banana
- Juice of half a lime
- 2 parts dark rum (Ron Mocambo Anejo)
- 3/4 parts triple sec
- 3/4 parts chai tea vodka (Seraphine)
- 1 dash cherry bitters (bitter cube cherry bark bitters)
I put everything in a blender with a handful of ice and blended it until it was smooth. I had hoped for more of a crushed ice or slushy texture, but making a small batch with only a bit of ice means it ended up mostly melted by the time I got to drink it. I apparently need to work on my blender technique.
