Banana Rum Frappe

I see where this drink is going. There's something wonderfully tropical about it, this sort of banana rum sour you can do blended or with crushed ice. It is all very refreshing.

I did what I could to avoid that fake creme de banan flavor and to get real banana into the drink. MurLarkey makes an unsweetened banana whiskey from tiny bananas. There's a lot more of a brown sugar or vanilla scent to it and no actual sugar. If you want it, and I suggest you add at least a half teaspoon, you should do it yourself. At least you know your banana flavor is real.

If I were to do this drink again, I'd use more banana whiskey to make the flavor even more intense. Up the proportion to equal parts light rum and MurLarkey.
Combine liquid ingredients in a blender with ice (or with crushed ice in a shaker). Blend or shake quickly but not until smooth and pour into a rocks glass. Garnish with banana slices.
