At the moment it’s raining, the clouds are getting more grey by the minute and I’m sat in the living room with socks, a jumper, and the heating on.
BUT WITH A FLIPPIN’ SUMMERY COCKTAIL IN MY HAND (can I get a hell yeah?).
I’ve spent most of this morning like ‘ugh meh what a rubbishy time of the year meh meh meh wanna go on holiday meh meh‘ SO I decided to refresh my mindset and make the most dreamy Banana & Chai Daquiri to grace the Internet.
Plus can I get a high five for using the excuse to put a recipe on my blog as a good idea to start drinking at two o’clock in the afternoon?
I originally made this cocktail probably just over a year ago when I first bought myself and my mum a bottle of Henny & Joe’s chai syrup.
Not even gonna lie to you pals, I literally can’t get enough of chai syrup; mostly it features in my porridge, or my infamous chai cupcakes or even just a toddy of hot chai (did I srsly just say toddy?).
But hands down, the Banana & Chai daquiri is the best cocktail to move you from a rainy spring into a sizzling hot summer.
The spice and warmth of the chai is enough to make you all nostalgic for those chilly winter days, but the fresh and topical taste of the banana and lime makes you wanna strip into a hot pink swimsuit and jump into a swimming pool accompanied with a sassy AF unicorn float.
I N G R E D I E N T S
Handful of ice
50ml light rum (I used Bacardi)
25ml chai syrup
2 teaspoons of coconut milk
4 teaspoons of brown sugar
1/2 a lime (juiced) & use the other half to decorate
M E T H O D
Blend blend blend blend blend.
Just chuck everything into your blender and pulse for 10-20 seconds or so. You don’t need to be too specific, and pretty much everyone will differ on the taste so you can add as much chai, lime (or rum!) as you like.
Pour into your prettiest glasses, shove a slice of lime on the side, call the girls over and snap that shit up on Instagram *sassy lady emoji*
It’s absolutely divine, and it has banana in it soooo I’m just assuming that counts towards my five-a-day.
You can thank me later.
