Island Delight

Last weekend I ordered a delicious looking tropical concoction with rum that the bartender called an “Island Delight”. Despite attempts to get the exact recipe before leaving, he would only divulge that it contained OJ, Piña Colada Mix, Malibu Rum and Grenadine. The bad news is that our first attempt at recreating the taste of the Island Delight did not turn quite as good as the one we ordered. The good news is that it still tasted great! So – here is the Island Delight recipe attempt #1.

Island Delight #1
(serves 1)

2 oz. Coconut Rum
2 oz. Piña Colada Mix
2 oz. Orange Juice
.5 oz. Grenadine
Orange slice

Mix rum, piña colada mix, orange juice and ice in a blender until thick and frosty. Pour into a glass. Add grenadine and mix in just slightly. Garnish with an orange slice.

Dirty Banana

The first time I experienced a drink called the a Dirty Banana was in Jamaica after spending the day on a Cool Runnings Sail to Dunn’s River Falls. The sail offered endless pours of rum punch and to be honest with you, by the time someone ordered a Dirty Banana cocktail for me later that evening, I was nearly rummed out for the day. I know, what a lightweight. However, the lovely flavor of fresh banana mingled with dark rum and coffee flavored liqueur remained etched in my mind.

Recently one of our Facebook friends asked if we could dig up a recipe for a Dirty Banana that she had enjoyed during a recent vacation to Jamaica. There were many recipes available on the web, but after a bit of testing and tweaking, we settled on the taste of the recipe below. We sprinkled the top of the drink with cinnamon, but allspice could be used as well as a floater of Tia Maria! Enjoy a taste of Jamaica, mon!
