5 shots out of 5
I have to share this little story with you. Not thinking of how I looked doing this, I had made tonight's cocktail, Banana Boat, and LOVED it soooo much that I needed to walk down to Steph's house (Here's her awesome site) with martini glass in hand for her to try it! I walked down, knocked on her door, handed her the cocktail to try......mission accomplished. Now for the walk home. Happy with myself and my cocktail, I turned around and started walking home. Along drives a guy in a red explorer, totally staring at me with the biggest "way to go girl" smile on his face! It totally made me smile, because at that moment I realized what I looked like! He gets to the corner, rolls down his window and sticks his arm out to give me a BIG wave before he disappears behind the houses. Just thinking of what it all must have looked like makes me laugh. OK, onto tonight's cocktail.
I gave tonight's cocktail 5 shots out of 5. WOWZERS, this is a very good cocktail! I am SOOO enjoying the banana liqueur in this one! Tastes just like bananas! Each ingredient compliments the other in such a fantastic way that I wish I would have known about this cocktail earlier! Hope you try and enjoy a Banana Boat!
Here is the recipe for a Banana Boat:
- 1 shot coconut rum
- 1 shot banana liqueur
- 2 shots pineapple juice
In a shaker add ice, rum, banana liqueur and pineapple juice. Shake it up real well to get everything mixed up good. In a chilled martini glass, strain your cocktail and enjoy!

Cheers to banana liqueur! I am enjoying cocktails that have this liqueur in them. It's a liqueur that is a pleasant surprise, I must say!
