Fruity Daiquiris

Husband and I honeymooned in Kona.  It was magical.  It was beautiful.  It was hard to come back home.  Alas, we had bills to pay and dogs that missed us, so home we went.  But not quite accepting the fact that our vacation in paradise was over, we started experimenting with daiquiri recipes.  It took us several iterations of varying degrees of success, but eventually we came up with a real winner.  Now, I am going to share it with you.  You can thank me later.

Fruit of your choice (For the drink below we used half a mango and a quarter of a honeydew.  Bananas, strawberries, peaches, watermelon, or anything else in season will work perfectly.  We have tried them all.)
2 tsp sugar
1 tbsp Cointreau
1 shot rum
1/2 shot of lime (bottled will work)
Splash of coconut rum
1 cup of ice

Put in blender.  Blend til slushy (about 30 seconds with a good blender).  Drink up.

These are our honeydew mango concoctions.  Ta da!
