Bananas in Paradise - Let's have a Shot

Pin It Now!

 OH BOY... Let's have a Shot!!!

But not just any Shot, this drink has the flavors of Chocolate plus of course, Bananas... with hints of Hazelnut!  Really, what's not to love.

I am in the midst of getting ready for my annual Super Bowl party.  This year I want to add a couple of "Let's do Shots" Games, but I want to avoid the messy ugly shots of tequila or whiskey that normally goes with that phrase.  OK... Truth be Told, I am after drinks that the ladies will want to drink.

And by gosh, by golly, this is more than one.  Simply delicious, dangerously so since you can not taste the booze at all.  Very much chocolate flavored, with enough hints of the other two liqueurs to make this special.

Only requires a three bottles of booze, makes this affordable for a home bar.  The Creme de Banana and Breme de Cocoa belong in every home bar anyway, you may have a half a bottle of each already.  The Frangelico, the hazelnut flavor has such a pretty bottle you may want to keep that in your regular home bar as well.  Booze really does not spoil, so buy a bottle every now and then and in no time, you have a stocked bar.

Cheers and go team!

 OK, Here's What I Did...

Bananas in Paradise

  • 1/2 ounce Creme de Banana
  • 1/2 Ounce Creme de Cocoa
  • 1/2 ounce Frangelico
Mixing Directions
  1. These are best chilled... Either have frosted shot glasses ready from the freezer or stash the bottles in the fridge until ready to mix.
  2. Start with the Creme de Banana
  3. Add Creme de Cocoa
  4. Add the Frangelico
  5. Serve Chilled and ENJOY!
