This post is intended for those 21+ years of age. Please enjoy responsibly. Frozen Banana Daiquiri
I had my fair share of frozen banana daiquiri’s on my honeymoon in Jamaica (we won’t discuss how many years ago that was let’s just say I’m into the good gift numbers). Brought over by cabana boys to the beach, to the pool, to the lobby, you name it. They were so polite it would have been rude to have not accepted them right? Right.
They were the best banana daiquiris I’d ever tasted. I’m not sure why I’d never tried to recreate them before now but I’m glad I finally did. What made me try after all those years? A beautiful bottle of banana rum.
Not just any rum. Super country star Kenny Chesney’s Blue Chair Bay Banana Rum. I have to tell you I’m pretty giddy about this partnership. I am a H-U-G-E country music fan. Like bananas (sorry couldn’t help myself). If you haven’t heard of the brand yet, Kenny (because we’re tight now I thought I’d skip the formalities of Mr. Chesney) wanted a rum that was worthy of sharing with his own friends, and with the development of Blue Chair Bay, he did exactly that. By working with one of the world’s great master blenders, Mike Booth, he was able to create a blend of true beach aged rum. This rum is even created at the Caribbean’s last true beach side distillery, right on the water!
Blue Chair Bay is available in four flavors: White, Coconut, Coconut Spiced and Banana. The White Rum is crystal clear, balanced, with gentle spice notes, and is equally at home on the rocks or in a classic cocktail like a mojito. The coconut is robust yet easy with a just-cracked-open-coconut character (all natural) and an incredibly smooth mouth feel. The Coconut Spiced Rum is the new way to spice, where cinnamon, nutmeg and clove meet beach-aged rum and natural coconut for a whole new way to experience the islands.
Sounds good right? Ready to make your own. Of course you are. Pop a few bananas into the freezer, grab some glasses and your blender and whip up a few of these beauties this weekend. Blue Chair Bay rum celebrates the anytime, anywhere spirit of the islands. One sip is a one-way ticket to the beach: an invitation to kick back, get that toes-in-the-sand feeling, and let the day gently slip into the sunset.
To know Blue Chair Bay is to know the free spirit of the islands: music, sand, friends, living in the moment and good times had by all. Who doesn’t want that? This beach loving girl sure does.
Blue Chair Bay is now available in 50 states across America, at an approximate retail price of $28.99 for a 1.75L bottle.

I love it Paula!! Frozen drinks like this remind me also of my honeymoon in St.Lucia!!
Oh gosh I never thought of banana daiquiris and never knew a banana rum existed. BTW that honeymoon of yours, however many years ago, sounds fabulous!

I’m a rum girl all the way — gotta try this one.
“Good gift years…” Hahaha! I’m sure a couple of these beauties would make me feel young again. Looks delicious, Paula!

Take me away! That’s exactly what this banana daiquiri would do!

Well hello lovely! That sounds amazing! I’d make some for my Mom who loves bananas but am not sure they’d ever make it to her lips!

You sold me both on the rum and the daiquiri. Wow just think I am following a blog of a woman who is tight with Kenny Chesney. Lol.

Meet me on a beach chair down by the waters edge with a couple of these, OK?
Colleen (Souffle Bombay) says
Yumm!!! Yo know how I feel about cocktails! Have to say I have never had one with banana in it…its about time I rectify that!
Lauren @ Healthy Delicious says
I don’t think I’ve ever had a banana daquiri before… it sounds great!
That sounds like a really great drink. I have never made my own daiquiris
Lori Grimaldi says
The drink was great, but the recipe should tell you to peel the bananas before you freeze them.
