March 25, 2010 (Day 54) — Banana Banshee
It’s officially spring. And today, it actually feels like a spring day. Not too long ago, I managed to swipe some creme de banana from my parents (and by swipe, I mean I asked if I could take the bottle that’d been sitting in their cabinet for a good half decade).
Now, I’m naturally wary of things such as creme de banana. I mean… there’s not much to me that really jumps off the page and screams “DRINK ME!” Which is odd, when you consider that I love banana Runts. And banana Laffy Taffy. And banana bread. But, I digress.
So, I chose a recipe at random for my first foray into banana-based cocktails. In this case, random was picking the first one I found. The Banana Banshee.
2 oz creme de banana
2 oz creme de cacoa
2 oz heavy cream
Pour into a fun party glass, stir and drink. Garnish that bitch with an umbrella if you want to. Don’t worry. I won’t tell.
Very sweet. Very banana-y. Banana-eque? Banana-ish.
A great summer drink. Even Jenn liked it!
