This combination of fruit flavors and tequila tastes just like bubble gum. The only thing that makes it pink is food coloring. But it tastes so real, you might be blowing bubbles afterward.
3 cups ice
1 banana, peeled and broken into pieces
3 ounces gold tequila
3 ounces Cointreau
4 ounces crème de banane
4 ounces orange juice
Juice of 2 limes
2 teaspoons superfine sugar
2 drops red food coloring
4 pieces “soft” bubble gum for garnish
1. Combine all the ingredients in a blender.
2. Cover and pulse on and off until the mixture starts to swirl evenly.
3. Blend on high for 20 seconds, or until the drink is completely smooth.
4. If desired, garnish the edge of the glass with “soft” bubble gum.
You can add 2 drops of any food color you prefer, but change anything else in this drink and it just won’t taste like bubble gum.
STRIPED BUBBLE GUM BUZZ Make the recipe without any food coloring. Pour half the drink into a small pitcher and add 2 or 3 drops of your choice of food coloring. Stir well. Add 1 drop of a different color to the drink remaining in the blender. Blend quickly to incorporate the color. Carefully spoon the different colors into a tall glass because if you pour them, you’ll mix the colors.
