Not that I drink a lot but when I do, I’m usually drinking with my wife, the lovely and talented Kathy. While I like a good cosmopolitan when drinking, Kathy is not a big fan of them. Back in the day, when we were working at Disney and dating, her favorite drink was the Banana Banshee. I thought I would go find a good recipe for that so i could make them for her. To my great surprise, there weren’t any good ones out there. So I’ve taken pieces from several of them, added a bit of my own and come up with one that she would like. It’s taken a couple of weeks of experimenting but I think I’ve finally found a recipe that works.
- 1 Jigger of Vodka
- 1 Jigger of Banana alcohol (I use 99 Bananas)
- 1 Jigger of Cream de Cacao (white)
- 4 Jiggers of Half and Half
- 1 frozen banana
Put all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. I find it’s best if if slice up the banana first as it reduces the blending time and the drink stays colder. The banana gives it a great texture and cools it off so you don’t need to add any crushed ice. Don’t blend it too long or it will warm up, just enough to make it smooth and on a low speed.
This makes 2 servings, which is great because the lovely and talented Kathy usually polishes off the first one in short order. Making them 2 at a time saves me tine in the long run.
Until next time,
