Parrot Perch

Day 74

Parrot Perch
3.5 shots out of 5

Where did the weekend go?  I swear it just began.  Back to the routine tomorrow.  Weekend's just about over which makes it a perfect time for a cocktail!  Parrot Perch is what is on the menu for tonight's cocktail.

I gave tonight's cocktail 3.5 shots out of 5.  This is a pretty good cocktail.  It isn't strong in the banana department like some of my other cocktails have been, but I can definitely taste the difference when I use an actual banana instead of just the banana liqueur (I like the liqueur better).  It's a nice cocktail.  If you were offering me another one I'd take it, but I don't think I'd order it at a bar.  I'd want something else with a little bit more flavor.  That being said, I'm glad I tried it.

Here is the recipe for Parrot Perch:

  • 1 1/2 shots coconut rum
  • 1/2 shot triple sec
  • 1 small banana (I used a little more then 1/2 of a large banana)
  • 3 shots orange juice
  • 1 shot banana liqueur
In a blender add 1 cup ice, rum, triple sec, banana, orange juice and banana liqueur.  Blend until all of the ice is gone and as is the banana.  Pour and enjoy!

Here is a photo of the end result:

Here's to finally trying an actual banana in one of my cocktails instead of just the liqueur!
