Rainbow Banana

Labor Day weekend is here!  How exciting.  This weekend for us is baseball practice (surprising, I know) and a local Festival.  We usually spend this weekend up at the lake with my folks, but I think those days may have passed for now.

Tonight I am going to do a short but sweet post.  I need to do it quickly because our 9 year old's 4th grade teacher will be posted at 5:00 at the school and he needs to know who his teacher is soooo badly.  Every 3-5 minutes he asks what time it is, so if we do not leave AT 5:00 I think I will be in lots and lots of trouble.

I wanted to make a blended cocktail today because it's incredibly hot out today.  I initially made this cocktail out of 3 ingredients and it was more in the milkshake form.  Then I decided to add sprite to make it more liquidier.  I personally liked the flavor of the milkshakier one best therefore you all get 2 recipes tonight!  My ratings are below for each cocktail.  Above is an average of the two.

Here is my recipe for a Rainbow Banana (thicker version):
(This version gets 5 shots out of 5)

  • 2 ounces coconut rum
  • 1 ounce banana liqueur
  • 1 cup rainbow sherbet
Here is my recipe for a Rainbow Banana (thinner version):
(This version gets 3 shots out of 5)

  • 2 1/2 ounces coconut rum
  • 2 ounces banana liqueur
  • 1 cup rainbow sherbet
  • 1 1/2 ounces sprite
Either way you decide to make it you will use a blender.  Basically all you need to do is put all of the ingredients in the blender and blend them up until completely mixed.  It's just that easy!

Here is a photo of the end result (thinner version):

    1. Actually I just created this cocktail so I have only tried it with coconut rum. I'm sure it would be good with regular rum as well.
