Bananas are awesome! They fill you up and nourish you with a blast of potassium, vitamin C, fiber, and all kinds of nutrients and other good stuff. Plus, if you blend them up into your drinks, they provide an awesome creamy texture along with that delicious subtle, tropical flavor. Oh, and did we mention that bananas are pretty much in season all year round?

From fresh blended fruit to pungent liqueur, we are believers in bananas’ power to take your cocktail to the next level! Are you with us?

1. Fresh Banana Daiquiri

The classic cocktail gets a new fruity creaminess with a fresh banana blended right in. Bonus: want your cocktail to taste like a milkshake? Swap out that fresh banana for a frozen one, and you’ll be amazed at the dreamy creaminess.

2. Banshee (Capri) Cocktail 

Not sure what to do with your banana liqueur? Why not add a little chocolate and cream for a chocolate-covered banana spin on the White Russian?

3. Banana Hammock


If you prefer your banana cocktails a little less desserty, mix it up with some spiced rum, lime and bitters for a perfectly spiced, tropical combination.

4. Banana Split Martini


The martini gets a makeover with banana and chocolate liqueurs. If you want to make things even more exciting, use vodka flavored with your favorite banana split topping, like strawberry, pineapple, coconut or even a second dose of chocolate, because when it comes to banana splits, you can’t overdo it.

5. Rock Lobster


If you’re a sucker for tropical tiki drinks, you’ll adore this fruity blend of coconut rum, banana liqueur, grenadine, fresh banana, pineapple and orange juices.

6. Louisville Jockey Club Julep
 

Lemon bitters, nutmeg and cinnamon provide the perfect spiced balance to your favorite sweet bourbon-banana combo.

7. Bananas Foster Cocktail


This dessert cocktail is about as decadent as you can get, with vanilla, butterscotch and chocolate, all of which pair beautifully with banana liqueur and cream. If you want to take it the extra mile, ditch the cream and blend the whole thing with a frozen banana for the ultimate chilled, fruity treat.

8. Dirty Banana


Ok, this cocktail might sound like an unappealing, bizarre insult, but it’s actually referring to the coffee liqueur that tastes DELICIOUS with rum, cream and spice. Blend it with some thick, sweet banana, and everybody will be asking for seconds.
