Cherimoya and Lemon Frozen Daiquiris

The cherimoya's texture adds to the creaminess of this cocktail, while the fruit's delicate flavor balances the zing of the lemon and rum. For a sweet presentation, dip rims of glasses in remaining lemonade concentrate, then in coarse sugar.

8 servings (serving size: about 3/4 cup)

* 3 cherimoyas, peeled and halved lengthwise
* 4 cups ice cubes
* 3/4 cup white rum
* 9 ounces frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed and undiluted
* Lemon wedges (optional)

Cut each cherimoya half into 2 wedges. Remove seeds from cherimoya pulp; discard seeds. Place pulp in a blender. Add ice, rum, and concentrate to blender. Puree until smooth. Divide cherimoya mixture evenly among each of 8 glasses; garnish with lemon wedges, if desired. Serve immediately.
