This Dirty Banana cocktail recipe is a dangerously delicious and boozy frozen drink recipe loaded with rum, banana, coffee, and chocolate flavors!
The Dirty Banana is pretty much the most delicious boozy milkshake ever! Its sweet properties help hide the 3 ounces of alcohol in each serving – which makes them go down real easy.
That’s probably why the Dirty Banana was such a popular item aboard my recent cruise.
Back in March, I had the opportunity to partner with one of my favorite travel companies, Princess Cruises.
And by the end of the week, almost everyone aboard had one of these delicious frozen drinks in hand!
What’s In It?
Princess Cruises makes the Dirty Banana with Gosling’s Dark Rum, Kahlua, Patron XO Cafe Liqueur, cream, chocolate syrup, and fresh banana.
For my version, I used Appleton Rum and Blue Chair Banana Cream Rum (you could also use banana liqueur) for even more banana flavor and omit Patron.
How To Make It:
This is such a simple and fast drink to make and doesn’t require any technique. You’re just going to add all of your ingredients into a blender (this one is my favorite) and blend until smooth.
Drizzle some extra chocolate syrup around your glass before pouring in your drink, then top with whipped cream and a cherry.
And don’t forget to serve it up with a straw – these monkey ones are so fun!!!
And if you really want this thick and creamy, I highly recommend adding a scoop of vanilla ice cream!
