This classic Caribbean cocktail is popular throughout the Caribbean. This cocktail is a mix of rum, Kahlua, or another coffee-flavored liqueur, and banana-flavored liqueur, shaken up until cold and creamy.
People don’t normally consider banana liqueur a staple in their liquor cabinet, so be careful if you purchase a bottle as many are sweet. There are good versions made by both Bols, which is rum-based, and Giffard, which has cognac-based foundations, and you can probably find more than one of these brands in a well-stocked liquor store or on the internet.
- By mixing the ingredients in a cocktail shaker or a tall glass filled with ice, shaking vigorously, and straining the mixture into a glass, you will serve the drink chilled, but not blended.
- A chocolate syrup treat is the perfect sweet treat to serve during happy hour, or sweeten it up with fresh pineapple to lend a tropical taste.
