Banana Daiquiri

It's summer here in the U.S., so we're continuing our exploration of popular tropical drinks to quench and cool during hot weather.

We've covered the origins of the daiquiri in a previous post on our blog, and here is an interesting take that uses a banana in place of the ubiquitous strawberry version that has been popular in the U.S. for decades.

Banana Colada

Here is a variation on the classic piña colada that substitutes banana for the pineapple in the standard recipe. Another star here is the cream of coconut; a canned mixture of coconut milk, sugar, and other ingredients is used as a flavoring for tropical drinks and desserts. 

Perhaps this recipe will finally knock the Kahlua® Colada off its throne as the most popular blog post!

Flüssiger Strudel

Flüssiger means "liquid" in German, and the Flüssiger Strudel, or "Liquid Strudel" as its more often called by regular customers, is the signature drink at the Wunderbar in Grünauer, Kansas City's premier Austrian restaurant. Scott Beskow mixes the Flüssiger Strudel from freshly squeezed lemon juice, rum, egg whites and leftover strudel syrup. If you don't have fresh-baked strudel on hand, Beskow suggests substituting a simple syrup made from sugar, apple cider and cinnamon sticks. The sweet-tart combination is delicious as an apéritif or dessert drink.
