Jamaica Smiles - A Tropical Concoction

OK, here it is:  the Jamaica Smiles recipe my brother-in-law Rod and his wife Lynn brought home from their recent trip to the Secrets St. James resort in Montego Bay on the Caribbean island.  It's a fruity concoction of rum (of course) and tropical flavors.  Rod duplicated Lynn's newly-favorite beverage for us this past weekend when we were floating in their pool.  He came out with a blender-full of this delicious frozen drink.  There we were in the pool, the sun shining, a light breeze, and our own "Cabana Boy" Rod bringing us frozen beverages.  It wasn't Jamaica and Tino the bartender wasn't serving, but it was very, very nice!


1 oz. rum
1 oz coconut rum
2 oz. rum cream
2 oz. pina colada mix
2 oz. strawberry daiquiri mix
half of a banana

Fill a blender about half-full with ice, add ingredients, blend.
Drink slowly!  (or risk brain freeze!)
