Recently, a friend gave me a bottle of Crème de Banane, a banana liqueur and a staple ingredient in several Tiki drinks. Since I’ve never had a bottle of this liqueur, I had some fun looking up classic recipes and experimenting with them. These are my favorite Creme de Banane cocktails:
- 1 1/2 oz dark rum
- 1/2 oz crème de banane
- 1/2 oz lemon juice
- shake with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass
- garnish with a lemon wedge
- 1 oz crème de banane
- 1/2 oz triple sec
- 1 oz cream
- 1 dash bitters
- shake with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass or oversized shot glass
Let me know in the comments what your favorite Crème de Banane cocktails are.
Thanks for the recipes and for a great blog.
Personally, I prefer the “Banana Bliss” which consists of two ingredients,
Banana liqueur and brandy or cognac in equal proportions
shake with ice, strain into martini glas, shampagne cup or whatever you like 🙂

That sounds like a great recipe – I’ll have to try it soon!
