Mel and Michele have a blog called Ketchup with Us where we fellow bloggers are invited to write a post about a different subject on the first and fifteenth days of each month. For this prompt, we were asked to write about the best drink we ever had.
I was stumped on this one for a while until I remembered a drink that I haven’t had in a while, but is a perfect drink on a hot day. If you are currently in a location where it is cold today, you can either imagine what it might be like when summer rolls around or say to yourself: “Screw it, who says I can’t have a cool, refreshing drink on a cold day?…I’ll just turn up the heat.” I never gave it a name, but for this post I’ll call it the “Lazy Ass Frozen Daiquiri”, because it is so easy to make.________
Throw one half can (small) of frozen Minute Maid lemonade, a dash of orange juice and four shots of rum in a blender. Add about two cups of ice and blend until the concoction is smooth, without any big chunks of ice. They go down very easy, so you can drink heavily.________
By the way, I had the good fortune to have a Daiquiri at La Floridita in Havana. La Floridita was a hangout of Ernest Hemmingway and the story goes that he invented the Daiquiri there.
