Virgin Banana Margaritas

9 06 2006

Those of you who know me well know that I like a good margarita! So when bananas get back to a decent price in Australia, I'll make this (the Queensland banana crop was wiped out by Cyclone Larry in March 2006 and so banana prices are through the roof at the moment).

  • 1 lime wedge
  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice
  • caster sugar (for the glasses)
  • 3 peeled bananas 
  • 1/4 cup sugar 
  • 1/4 cup whole milk 

Rub rims of 2 glasses with lime. Spread caster sugar on a plate and dip the rims into the sugar to coat. Fill blender half way with ice cubes. Add lime juice, bananas, sugar and milk. Blend until combined. Taste for sweetness – add more sugar, if required. Pour into glasses and serve immediately.
