Tropical Hawaiian Kiss

Tropical Hawaiian Kiss

Tropical Hawaiian Kiss, cocktail

Last Friday I had one of my amazing friends call and say, "Hey, I know it's pizza Friday at your place, so can we pick up a pizza and come over?".  

Great minds because I was literally online adding toppings to our pizzas we were going to order.  

See, at our house Friday used to mean "Pizza Friday", then it turned into "Pizza and Beer Friday".  

Last Friday was "Pizza, Beer & Cocktails Friday"...........which I think is kinda cool.  

Needless to say I needed some good 'ole fashioned drinking and laughing therapy that night.  I decided that I was going to grab some stuff from my bar and just create something completely new.  

Did it.  

It was a so much that we each had 3.  

Don't judge was a long week!

I am a HUGE fan of banana liqueur.  

Like HUGE!  

I love the way it smells, I love how it adds such an amazing flavor to my cocktails, I just love everything about it.  

Now my friend had never had it before........I KNOW RIGHT?  

Simply crazy talk!  
I mean she's a friend of The Cocktail Lady and she's never had banana liqueur?  

I must be slipping!

Needless so say, she's in love with it........almost as much as I am!  Like I said, she's an amazing friend!

This cocktail was SO delicious!  

Like I said above, we had 3.........each.  

As we sat there drinking our cocktails we went through a handful of names to call this cocktail.  In the end, the 3 words that kept on popping up were the three I chose.  

Here is my recipe for a Tropical Hawaiian Kiss:

  1. Sounds great! Would love it if you shared on the "What's for Dinner" link up!

  2. I'd love to use this at our annual Luau this year! How would I convert this recipe from a single drink serving to a gallon?

    1. Oh an annual Luau sounds like fun! Great question! I have added a recipe card above for a gallon sized Tropical Hawaiian Kiss. It's printable too! Have fun and enjoy the cocktails!
