1. Banana Bliss Martini

Give the classic martini a banana twist with 50 ml Smirnoff Vodka, 20 ml banana liqueur, a splash of cream and a dash of simple syrup. Shake until smooth, strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with a fresh banana slice. Creamy, dreamy, and undeniably banana-y.


2. Tropical Banana Rum Punch

Embark on a tropical journey with 50 ml Captain Morgan Dark Rum, half a ripe banana, 30 ml pineapple juice, and a squeeze of fresh lime blended into a fruity mix. Serve over ice in a highball glass, garnished with a pineapple wedge for a summery delight.


3. Banana Whiskey Sour

Give the classic whiskey sour a banana spin by mixing 50 ml Johnnie Walker Black Label, 25 ml fresh lemon juice, 15 ml banana puree and a teaspoon of brown sugar. Shake well with ice, garnish with a banana slice and brandied cherry for a delightful fusion.


4. Banana Blue Daiquiri

A fun take on the daiquiri, blend 50 ml Antiquity Blue whisky, lime juice, simple syrup and a ripe banana. Pour into a chilled coupe glass and garnish with a twist of lime for an unexpectedly silky drink with a whisky kick.


5. Golden Banana Old Fashioned

Infuse a banana twist into the old-fashioned by muddling a banana slice with 50 ml Black Dog Triple Gold, Angostura bitters, and brown sugar. Stir well, strain over ice, and garnish with orange peel and a banana slice for a bold, banana-accented classic.
