The Dirty Monkey, Blended

A banana of a good time, the Dirty Monkey utilizes a fresh banana to build a cocktail that we experienced in our Cancun vacation. May not be the same recipe, but it looks about the same including the chocolate syrup. Very much looks like it could be a mudslide of sorts.

As a matter of fact, one may say this is a banana mudslide if one didn’t know there was a drink called the Dirty Monkey.

Chicago Hi-Balls:

1 1/2 oz. Vodka, 1/2 oz. Fresh Banana, 2 oz. Cream, 1 oz. Coffee Liqueur, 1 oz. Cream of Coconut, Chocolate Syrup

Thanks George!

Arthur Donald says:

If you shook the drinkd after blending would it be called Spank the Dirty Monkey?

should be rum instead of vodka in my opinion

Arthur Donald says:

Mine hangs to the right, which makes sense, given that I’m right handed…

Dave G says:

I’m taking a break from cream drinks for a while. I will never try to make my own Irish Cream again. Too bad. It looks like a great drink.

Mark Fernandes says:

Favourite breakfast drink might be some form of Hot Toddy. Sounds like Dan and Jalethe are in the audience

Hoztyle says:

I don’t know why, but you seem a bit uncomfortable in there Derrick, maybe it’s because you’re standing up instead of seated but anyways, this cocktail looks awesome!

Try Th says:

If only I liked coffee cause all of the cocktails you guys make with coffee liqueur have awesome ingredients. I think I’ll try using Tempus Fugit’s creme de cacao and see how that turns out.
