Winter can be too long to endure, so sometimes it's nice to treat yourself to a delicious prelude to warm weather.

A fresh banana smoothie-like drink mixed with coconut milk, rum and ice will be your next favorite cocktail, and it doesn't require any effort at all to make — just five minutes to put together, and it uses very simple ingredients you can buy everywhere. And the wonderful part is you can have it anytime and anywhere, whether it's summer or winter or somewhere in between.
