Goombay Smash

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by kitty.rock

This drink takes its name from a lively festival celebrated annually in the Bahamas, Key West, and other tropical islands. Originating in Africa and the West Indies, the festival featured dancers who used a skin-covered drum they called a "gombey," meaning rhythm. Traditionally dancers wore high, feathered headdresses, colorful costumes, and sometimes fanciful or bizarre masks. From "The Florida Keys Cookbook" and posted for ZWT5.

I used less grenadine cause we don't like our drinks too sweet. This drink is very good, very tropical. Thanks FloridaNative :) Made for Holiday tag

  1. Put all ingredients except pineapple spears in a blender and process until frothy. Serve over ice in a tall glass and garnish with pineapple spear.
  2. NOTE: This colorful drink, which is a frothy pink because of the grenadine, is so smooth you can easily get smashed!
