Good & Bad

Good - We still had frozen berries in the freezer from before our R&R, not freezer burned(!), and a bottle of rum.

Bad - When I started blending the berries up, with ice, a fresh banana, honey, and some rum, the blender started leaking.

Good - I was able to finish blending and pour the daiquiri into glasses.

Bad - The pitcher for the blender (an old plastic thing) was split all the way down the side. Not sure where I can get a good new one any time soon (except by mail). No daiquiris, margaritas, fruit smoothies, ice cream floats, coladas, etc... :-( they are so refreshing, and it's still quite warm here!

Good - The blender-killing daiquiri. Berries are so good for you! Get your vitamin C and potassium in one refreshing frozen drink, and it's even said that alcohol helps boost the antioxidant properties in the fruit.

1 cup frozen strawberries
1 cup frozen blueberries
1 cup frozen red raspberries
1 large banana
2 tbsp (approx) honey
1/2 - 3/4 cup rum (or not, it's up to you - Bacardi gold went well though)
ice to fill the blender
Blend until smooth
(toss old broken blender ... sigh... )

Sounds wonderful! Except, until my stuff arrives, I too am blenderless!

It was yummy! :-) I hope your stuff catches the fast boat (vs. the alternative) and gets here soon! Waiting for your stuff is one of the hardest parts of moving abroad.

Condolences on the blender! Ian just broke the pitcher from the iced tea maker, but the blender is still working.
