After one sip, the monkey inside you will be screaming to get out. We all have monkeys inside us, it’s a scientific fact.
A Banana Banshee Cocktail Recipe is a traditional Boat Drink cocktail, containing a mixture of intoxicating alcohol or liquor combined with other ingredients such as fruit juices or mixers. The Banana Banshee Cocktail Recipe is ideally served with an exotic and colorful presentation, accompanied by tropical fruits, crushed ice, umbrellas, sparklers, paper flowers etc (Sparklers? Sure why not).
I was a bartender back in my college days at Pitt State and worked at a restaurant called Trapper Jacks. It’s Kansas, what do you expect. There I learned the art of making the popular Banana Banshee. In doing a little research for this post I noticed the recipes on the internet were very different from what I use to whip up. I’m going to give you the super duper recipe we use to make at Trappers. I promise you, it will be better than anything you’ll find on the web. Dare I say “Worlds Best”?
Banana Banshee Cocktail Recipe (The Best Version)
- 1 Whole Banana
- 2 oz. Myers Dark Rum
- 1/2 oz. Malibu Rum (Any coconut rum will work. Full oz. if your feeling crazy.)
- 1/2 oz. Creme de Cacao
- 1 oz. Light Cream
Add all ingredients into a blender. Blend until the mixture is smooth and shake like. Pour into a tall cocktail or pint glass. Garnish with whipped cream, banana slice, cherry and feel free to add a tiny umbrella or sparklers (Yes a sparkler, you know you want to) or any other party favors you have laying around the house. Raise glass and toast.
A lot of the other recipes called for Banana Liqueur, but why use a liqueur when you can use a real banana. I also think the Myers Dark Rum is key because of how sweet it is. I dare you to whip up this boat drink this weekend and tell me it’s not the best Banana Banshee you’ve ever had. You won’t be able to. The label “Worlds Best” is fact and not to be tossed around lightly.
