27. Y La Bamba - ‘Court the Storm’ + Banana Daiquiri

Y La Bamba - ‘Court the Storm’ + Banana Daiquiri

Ingredients: 1 1/2 oz light rum, 1 tbsp triple sec, 1 banana, 1 1/2 oz fresh lime juice, 1 tsp sugar, 1 cherry

Mixing Instructions: Combine all ingredients (minus cherry) with a cup of crushed ice in a blender.  Blend at low speed for 5 sec then blend at high speed until firm.  Pour contents into glass and top with cherry.

Notes: This album is likely quite different from anything else in your music collection.  The combining of both American folk-pop with traditional Latin influences and instrumentation sometimes gives Y La Bamba a slightly schizophrenic feel, but in a way that charms and invites deeper investigation.  This is an album to take in slowly and methodically which is why a frozen drink seemed fitting…tasty, but not made for gulping down all at once.
