Funky Monkey

A while back, we were asked to locate the recipe for a Funky Monkey, a blended drink that FB friend Carol had enjoyed while vacationing in the Caribbean. We came across several versions, but most contained a delectable combination of rum, banana, coconut and chocolate…

After a little bit of “research” on the amounts of each ingredient, we came up with the following recipe. Tweek the amounts to create the best blending of tastes for your palate!
