June/July Recipe Exchange: Bahama Mamas!

This is my first time participating in the What's Cooking recipe exchange and I am so excited. I hope I did my recipe justice. I was assigned Bahama Mamas from hornedfroggy (Jessica) and lucky for my family I did them on a night where we could all drink one. . I did reduce the ice by about half... because my blender wouldn't hold all that and we're big drinkers.I am not personally a sweet drinking kind of lady so I had one large glass and that was enough. It was very tasty. My sister and sisters-in-law also tried it out and I made a virgin version for my step-daughter. It worked out for everyone!
1/2 cup light rum
1/2 cup Malibu or Parrot Bay Coconut Rum
1/2 cup grenadine syrup
1 cup Dole orange/pineapple/banana juic
8 cups crushed ice (I used about 4 cups of crushed ice)

ere are some pictures from our fun Bahama Mama night.

Some relatives may have shown up in some and I'm too lazy
to edit. Sorry!

My husband really liked these. He had 3! (I think)
