Here is our first recipe:


Ingredients for 1 pint:
Cold Passion Tea*
1.5 shots of White Rum
1 shot of Banana Rum
1/3 of a Banana
Ice
3 Mint Leaves
1 teaspoon of sugar

Directions:

  1. Place the mint leaves and a teaspoon of sugar in a pint glass.
  2. Muddle the mint leaves and sugar and then put it off to a side.
  3. In a blender combine about a 1/2 cup of tea 1.5 shots of white rum, 1 shot of banana rum, the 1/3 of a real banana, a few ice cubes (6).
  4. Once it has been blended, pour the mixture into the pint glass and serve!
You should be able to taste the banana with a refreshing mint after-taste.  Great for a relaxing afternoon.

* I make all my teas as sun tea.  Using a Carlos Rossi glass container I place a few teaspoons of raw sugar on the bottom and cut up a 1/4 of an orange.  I then fill the container with water and then slip in 2 passion tea bags.  After sealing it with the cap I leave it in the sun for 4 hours.  Hibiscus is brewed the same way and regular sun tea gets a cinnamon stick placed in it as well.

Our proposed names for this drink is called

  1. Saturday Tea
  2. Banana Passion
