This drink has been handed down through generations of families in the region of northern Mexico, just south of the Texan border. It has been said that an elderly patriarch by the name of Don Trevino first came up with this drink. This is an updated version of the Pan de Cafe Infectado usually drank in the border of the small barrios surrounding the city of Matamorros in Mexico during their Independence Day celebration.
- Put ice, strawberrries, and bananas into a blender and blend for 5 seconds. Add Malibu and Bailey's and blend until there is a smoothie-like consistency.
- Finally add mint leaves into blender and stir (DO NOT blend).
- Pour into a suitable glass and serve.
Tasty drink that packs a punch! I took another reviewer's suggestion and muddled the mint in the rum, then strained it out before blending with the other ingredients. The fruit flavors go surprisingly well with the Bailey's. Enjoyed this creamy dessert-in-a-glass - thanks for sharing the recipe!
I like this drink a lot. It is nice and creamy and not overly sweet. I did double up on the strawberries and did not add the mint leaves as I had none on hand. Will make this again, added to my cocktail recipes :) Thanks for sharing.
Mmmm! Creamy, dreamy grown-up smoothie! I made this with 1 (50 mL) bottle of the coconut rum and 1/2 (50 mL) bottle of Bailey's, 4 medium-large strawberries, and 1/2 banana. I also cut back on the mint, using the leaves off one stem. The only complaint I had was the mint--I didn't like the large leaves mixed in the drink. I think in future (the very-near-future!) I will either process just 1-2 leaves so they get all chopped up, or else perhaps macerate them in the rum, soak them, and strain them out, so that the rum will pick up the mint flavor. But other than the leaves in the drink, I loved it--the strawberry-banana flavor was delicious with the coconut rum-Irish cream flavors. Certainly not a combination I'd've thought to use, but I'm so very glad I tried it! Thanks so much for posting, Annacia! Made for PRMR tag game.
