Gilligan Cocktail

Day 45

4.5 shots out of 5

Another cocktail to give me a "theme" song in my head, just like the Ninja Turtle!  I'll need to go watch something on TV or read more of my book to get something else in my mind after I type my blog.

I gave tonight's cocktail 4.5 shots out of 5.  The Gilligan is an easy cocktail to drink.  It's not a super sweet syrupy cocktail at all.  The Malibu rum gives it a good coconutey taste while the banana liqueur puts a nice spin on the coconut.  I think I'm going to have to share the rest of my cocktail with my husband though because I gave him one sip and I got the "mmm, that's good" approval.  This banana liqueur is really surprising me!  It doesn't over power the cocktails that I've made with it so far, like the After Sex I made the other night.  It surprises me because I would just think that the banana flavor would kind of take over, but it just compliments what it's mixed with and gives only a subtle hint of banana, which is nice.

Here is the recipe for Gilligan:

  • 3/4 shot malibu rum
  • 3/4 shot light rum
  • 3/4 shot banana liqueur
  • 1 1/2 shots orange juice
  • 1 1/2 shots pineapple juice

In a shaker fill with ice, malibu rum, light rum, banana liqueur, orange juice and pineapple juice.  Shake it up really well to mix all of the ingredients up good.  Pour your entire mix into a tall glass and enjoy!
