Get out the blender for this milk shake-like drink. We’ve used rhum agricole, the cane juice rum distilled in the French Caribbean islands. Most Caribbean rum is distilled from molasses. The French style ferments the cane syrup and then distills the spirit.
2 ounces rhum agricole
1 banana, peeled
1/2 ounce lime juice
1 ounce orange curaçoa
3-4 ice cubes
Put all the ingredients into the blender and pulse 5 or 6 times. Blend on low for 10 seconds and then on high for 10 seconds until smooth. Pour into a chilled old-fashioned glass or short high-ball glass. Garnish with an orange wedge.
Mocktail: Substitute low-fat milk or almond milk for the rum.
