The Story Behind The Dirty Banana
This boozy frozen cocktail is a fan favorite across the Caribbean islands. A hefty amount of rum goes into the creation of the Dirty Banana — along with coffee liqueur such as Kahlúa, and cream for texture.
But as its name suggests, this drink’s star flavor is banana — a profile that’s created by the inclusion of both flavored liqueur and the fruit itself. Is it a milkshake, or is it a cocktail? The Dirty Banana may just be the best of both, and you don’t need to be soaking up the tropical sun to sip on this blended beverage.
