Banana Pineapple Colada
4 shots out of 5
I found this blended cocktail recipe for a Frozen Tropical Colada and wanted to make it. Then I remembered that one of my children finished off the orange juice yesterday.......boo, so I decided to make it anyways and just omit the orange juice.
I gave tonight's cocktail 4 shots out of 5. On a hot day like today (especially when you're running around playing laser tag with your husband and boys), I needed a blended cocktail. As we know, I looove banana puree and liqueur in my cocktails so I did a search for one and found this one (a little amended). I can taste where the orange juice is missing in this cocktail and think I will make this cocktail another night and include the orange juice. The orange juice needs to cut through the pineapple juice in this cocktail, but even though I don't have it tonight, it's still a good cocktail! I hope you are all enjoying your weekend! If not, blend yourself up a cocktail and see if that helps......if it doesn't.....shoot, blend another!!
Here is the recipe for a Banana Pineapple Colada:
- 2 oz coconut rum
- 1 oz banana liqueur
- 4 oz banana puree
- 1 oz pineapple juice
- splash of grenadine
In a blender add 1/2 cup of ice, rum, banana liqueur and puree and pineapple juice. Blend up your ingredients until all of your ice is gone. In a hurricane glass pour your splash of grenadine and then your blended cocktail. You can garnish with a cherry and umbrella if you're feeling extra fancy!

Here's to the first Saturday of summer vacation! I'm looking forward to a summer of fun, adventures and cocktails!!
