Coconut Bay’s Dirty Banana

Coconut Bay Resort & Spa on the amazing island of St. Lucia looks to be a great resort.  I’ve never had the pleasure of visiting , but was contacted by their PR rep to see if I’d feature Coconut Bay’s signature drink, the Dirty Banana on my weekly Boat Drinks post.  I told her, don’t you think I should charge you for the advertising you’d be receiving?  She said that if I ever found myself on St. Lucia at Coconut Bay, that I could have all the Dirty Banana’s I could drink as my fee.

I don’t have any plans as of right now to be on St. Lucia, but if the trade winds blow me that direction I guarantee you I’m holding her to that contract.  Cheers!

Dirty Banana Ingredients

Banana
Coconut Cream
Milk
White Rum
Mokatika (or any coffee liquor),
Ice.  Blend.  Enjoy.

Sounds like the perfect drink to cool off with pool side doesn’t it?

Let me know if you’ve ever had this tropical libation or if you’ve ever been to Coconut Bay, I’d love to hear about your experience.

Cheers to the Salt Life,

    I have had dirty bananas at quite a few other all-inclusive resorts and they are amazing. My first one came courtesy of the Moon Palace in Cancun, Mexico in 2001. But more to the point, I will be heading to Coconut Bay in June and plan on trying theirs at the adult bar as well!!!

  2. I have had many a Dirty Banana in Jamaica at what used to be the Grand Lido in Negril. We have tried to concoct this perfect libation with not too much luck. I think the difference is that you NEED to be in the islands to get the full effect!

    My friend Jackie Michaliga Williams sent me – we often pretend on our Facebook statuses that we are on an island in villas living next door to one another. It makes Mondays much easier when we can “walk to one of our villas, put our toes in the sand and have a tropical drink”.

  3. Nice story! I use to have my bedroom painted as beach scene, so every night I’d fall asleep next to the sea. Or at least that’s what I would pretend!

  4. I just got back from Coconut Bay Hurricane Tomas. The dirty banana was by far the best drink followed by the “14 by 61″

    When you go to Coconut Bay, look for Loan. She makes the best dirty bananas!

  5. Thanks Tony, I’ll ask for her and will have to try that 14 by 61. Cheers!

    I have had the St. Lucia Dirty Bananas (notice the pleural) from a little bar called Spinnakers. These drinks really hit the spot after a day baking on the beach! I would strongly recommend them to anyone wanting a bit of the Island Life!

  7. Hi Jennifer, thanks for the comment! You’ll have to mix up a Dirty Banana at home to bring back that island vibe, if only for a fleeting moment. Cheers!

  8. I’ve never been to Coconut Bay, but St. Lucia is my all-time favorite vacation spot. Even though I now live in the Florida Keys, St. Lucia is calling my name…

  10. Ha! I’d say so Paul. Cheers my friend!
