What's on the side? A Dirty Banana Shake

Posted by Magic of Spice

A Dirty Banana Shake


This cocktail has many varieties as well as methods of preparation. Typically you will
 find this drink containing crème de bananes,crème de cacao, coffee liqueur, 
dark rum and vanilla ice cream.

We are going to our version here today just slightly differently. Just a bit less 
sweet with fresh ripe bananas  and fresh brewed coffee.

Our version will be blended and served in a chilled pitcher, but you can divide the 
ingredients and make per cocktail utilizing a shaker if you prefer.
A fun and refreshing cocktail…The Dirty Banana


What you will need: 
1 large banana
4 ounces strong brewed coffee, chilled
4 ounces chocolate liqueur
4 ounces dark rum
2 ounces cream
8 scoops vanilla ice cream
1/2 cup ice, crushed


Add ice to blender and pulse until crushed.
Add remaining ingredients except ice cream, blend well.
Add ice cream blending until fully incorporated.
Place in chilled pitcher or cocktail glasses.
Serves 4





This is gong over for week three of the "Tailgating Game Week Party" over
at my good friend Drick's place. So stop over and check out the menu
and bring along a tasty treat of your own. You can link your delicious
party style foods until tonight 9-12-2011 at midnight.
