3 shots out of 5
I found a recipe for a Banana Split online and decided to amend it a little bit. Instead of putting plain vodka into the mix, I decided on vanilla vodka. I figured what's a banana split without the vanilla?
I gave tonight's cocktail 3 shots out of 5. This cocktail warms your insides. I can taste the bite from the vodka (I'm assuming that's where it's coming from), which I don't really like to taste in cocktails. My first sip I drank too quickly which made it not taste as good as the next sips, where I took a sip and let it sit on my tongue for a couple seconds before drinking it. Doing this made this cocktail taste better to me, most definitely. I do taste the banana and a hint of the chocolate in this cocktail which is nice, I just wish that I could taste them both a bit more.
Here is the recipe for a Banana Split:
- 1 shot vanilla vodka
- 1/2 shot banana liqueur
- 1/2 shot creme de cacao
In a shaker add ice, vodka, banana liqueur and creme de cacao. Shake it up well and strain it into a chilled martini glass.

I guess I can't like all Banana-ey cocktails. I do know I'll find more I do like though!
