I have always had a serious love for bananas. Of course they are great with breakfast, but they are pretty amazing when thrown into a cocktail too. 
I like to use up my browner bananas because they are naturally sweeter. However, it’s not necessary they be super ripe for this recipe. It’s really up to you and your and preferred taste. 
Normally daiquiris would be made with white rum but this summer has been all about the dark rum for me. Especially black rum, which I used in my Pineapple Rum Cocktail Recipe

It has the most amazing flavor and brings a whole new level to just about any cocktail. Trust me on this addition! Black rum is a totally must. I also used it in my Caribbean Painkiller recipe, which is not to be missed!
