Does anyone know some good cocktails with banana rum? Or maybe some other cocktails that would do well with banana rum replacing some normal or other flavored rum?

Sorry, can't help you there. According to Grog Log and Intoxica, the only flavored rum the author found any use for was coconut rum. Although I guess you could always toss it in with any drink that features creme de banana for an extra banana punch.

Hey guys, so I decided to go ahead and experiment, and I came up with a very good drink that tastes surprisingly complex for just 4-5 ingredients.


1 part banana rum
1 part coconut rum
2 parts orange juice
2 parts cranberry juice
1 dash grenadine


You could call it a more tiki version of Sex on the Beach.

Too sweet! Try adding some fresh lime juice to balance it out.

Try it like this and see what you think.

1 part banana rum
1 part coconut rum
2 parts orange juice
1 part cranberry juice
1 part fresh lime juice
1 dash grenadine

99 Bananas is a great version that adds more booze AND banana flavour.

Monkey Spunk anyone?

Blech, 99 Bananas is the exact stuff I wanna stay away from.

The stuff I bought is Cruzan's banana rum. I recommend it. The taste is a little subtle, but it actually tastes like banana, not banana candy.

I'll try the new recipe, Hakalugi, although the whole part of lime juice scares me. Did you mean sweetened lime juice?

I find the flavour of 99 bananas to be more banana-y than anything else I've tried.

Bols Banana Liqueur is also good, but it's flavour is much more subtle. It's also sweeter and more syrupy than 99 bananas.

I don't see where you get the 'candy' reference from. It's 99 proof fer chrisakes!

No, stay away from the sweetened stuff unless you're making a Gimlet, otherwise it's fresh squeezed only.

Have you picked up a copy of the Grog Log yet?

well here is my award winning monkey mai tai recipe:


1 oz mt gay extra old
1 oz cruzan single barrel
1 oz bols creme de banana
1/4 rock candy syrup
1/2 passion fruit syrup
1 oz fresh lime juice

perhaps you could use your banana rum instead of the creme de banana. or you could use only half an ounce of the cruzan single and half ounce of the banana rum.

if you can't find them at your local booze shop you can get them on trader vic's website. just remember that the shipping will be the same on one bottle as it is for three.

I had two of these last night. I used Cruzan and Appleton Estate Rums, as well as the 99 bananas instead of creme de banana. I added a bit of pineapple juice and had two nice big drinks. Very, very good.

My more punchy version would make a great party drink, heck, either of them would be a great crowd pleaser.

Thanks Mr. Hat!
