And I’m not sorry.
This banana daiquiri uses the leftover puree from the Layered Raspberry Banana Pops recipe I shared last week, and the whole time that I was drinking it, all that I could think about was one of my favorite Kids in the Hall Sketches:

Make the Banana Berry Daiquiris
To make one banana berry daiquiri: Fill a rocks glass with ice, then add 1/4 cup of the the puree, 1 ounce of rum, and 1/2 ounce of the Cointreau. Stir well for about 30 seconds, so that the ice starts melting a bit. Garnish with your lime wedge, and serve!
