Default Tropical Drinks

It's been hot and humid the last week or so. Way to hot to drink my
scotch or bourbon.

I've been fighting the heat with some tasty Mojitos that I make. I also
buy some Pina Colada mix in a bottle - just add one cup ice, one ounce of
rum, four ounces of mix, and blend. It's comes out icy and tasty. I've
also been drinking tequila sunrises. I've tried my hand at making
Caprihanas but I can not get the taste that experienced on my last cruise.
The Caprihanas I had on my last cruise were excellent. Almost better than a
Mojito.

Anyway, I need a few more drinks to add to my menu. I was hoping I
could get some recommendations from some of you.

I'm look for something tropical flavored that can be made in the blender
and come out frosty/icy thick. I have plenty of different rums, tequila,
bourbon, scotch, etc.. I need recipes!

I want something that's tropical like a Pina Colada. Maybe something
with a little banana in it. Something with fruit juice or whatever.

What do you recommend?

Thanks!

Default Tropical Drinks

This is what I mix up to sit by the pool - I dont have a name for it
but it's a variation on the Rum Runner (perhaps the Knorr Runner?):

In an Iced Tea glass (20 oz):

3/4 oz. Light Rum (I use Bacardi - like the rest of the world)
3/4 oz. Dark Rum (using my favorite - Gosling's Black Seal)
3/4 oz. Spiced Rum (the Captian of course)
3/4 oz. 99 Bananas (99 proof banana liqueur - a lower proof Creme
would be just as good)
3/4 oz. Raspberry Schnapps (DeKryuper Razzmatazz in this case)
1 8 oz. can pineapple juice
fill with cranberry juice

Build it all in the glass with lots of ice. Roll it into a large
shaker and give it just 1 or 2 shakes and roll it back into the glass.
The shake gives it a nice bit of foam on top and blends everything
together. It can all be tossed in a blender instead for a frozen
drink.

A word of caution - I'm not a small guy (6'6" 350 lb) but more than 2
or 3 of these and I get a bit sleepy.

Enjoy!
