Irish Encounter Cocktail Recipe

A frozen cocktail combining rum and Irish cream, the Irish encounter is an instant classic. I like it a lot, but its a little different from a pia colada. Banana is preferred to pineapple in this drink, and it’s infused with Baileys for a creamy touch (and the promised encounter). This recipe came to us from Pyrat Rum and their XO Reserve is a great choice to pair with it since it has some great citrus notes. A good amount of coconut milk and banana give it an excellent tropical fruit base, perfect for a hot summer day.

Recipe Variation

It is similar to the Pia Colada in that it can be shaken and serves as a very nice cocktail. Mix all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker, add the banana liqueur, and shake vigorously before straining out the ice.
