Avocado Daiquiri

Ok, I was reading up on daiquiries, of which the yummy strawberry flavour’s my
favourite.

And with a pitted avocado in hand (left hand to be precise),
I went about searching for an avocado

daiquiri recipe. Oh boy was I delighted to have found one!

It is fairly simple, rather straight forward perhaps,
in its process right till its presentation.

Avocadoes = Gotta love ’em for being such versatile little ugly looking dynamites!

What you need is :

. 1/4 medium avocado
. 3/4 oz fresh lime juice
. 1 cup of crushed ice
. 1 1/2 oz light rum ( sees the smile spreading on my face 🙂 )
. 1 lime wedge ( if you’re going to drown it, don’t bother with the lime wedge)
. a blender

Tried & tested methods

– Crush ice in blender (or if blender’s not available, pound ice to your heart’s content).

– Add rum, lime juice, and 1/4 medium avocado in blender.

– Blend until thoroughly mixed, smooth and in its glorious cream-like texture.

– Pour into glass and garnish with lime wedge.

Fruity Cocktails Count as Health Food

According to a recent study by US and Thai researchers, fruit cocktails count as health food.

By adding ethanol, which is a type of alcohol found in spirits such as rum and vodka to the fruits such as strawberries and blueberries, boosted the anti-oxidant nutrients.

“Any colored fruit or vegetable is rich in antioxidants, which are chemicals that can cancel out the cell-damaging effects of compounds called free radicals.”

Finally, something we can all enjoy that is good for us. 😀

I wonder if fruit cocktails will be introduced to hospital menus now that we know it is really good for you. Or maybe they could leave a chocolate mint on our pillow and hand us a fruit cocktail on arrival. 😀
