3.5 shots out of 5
Where did the weekend go? I swear it just began. Back to the routine tomorrow. Weekend's just about over which makes it a perfect time for a cocktail! Parrot Perch is what is on the menu for tonight's cocktail.
I gave tonight's cocktail 3.5 shots out of 5. This is a pretty good cocktail. It isn't strong in the banana department like some of my other cocktails have been, but I can definitely taste the difference when I use an actual banana instead of just the banana liqueur (I like the liqueur better). It's a nice cocktail. If you were offering me another one I'd take it, but I don't think I'd order it at a bar. I'd want something else with a little bit more flavor. That being said, I'm glad I tried it.
Here is the recipe for Parrot Perch:
- 1 1/2 shots coconut rum
- 1/2 shot triple sec
- 1 small banana (I used a little more then 1/2 of a large banana)
- 3 shots orange juice
- 1 shot banana liqueur
In a blender add 1 cup ice, rum, triple sec, banana, orange juice and banana liqueur. Blend until all of the ice is gone and as is the banana. Pour and enjoy!

Here's to finally trying an actual banana in one of my cocktails instead of just the liqueur!
