The Lazy Ass Frozen Daiquiri

ketchup with us
Prompt #12


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. 

Your comments are appreciated.

  2. What a great experience to sit in the same place as Hemingway and drink the drink he invented. I've never read any Hemingway, but I am a huge fan of his sometimes drinking buddy Robert Benchley. :D

  5. You had me at Lazy Ass.
    I use the lime concentrate for Margaritas, which contain more fruit than actual frozen margarita concentrate.
