Will I ever need to replace my creme de banana?:

Drink 33: Planet of the Apes

Ingredients I used:

Fresh lime juice
Pineapple Juice (Dole)
Orange Juice (fresh-squeezed)
Bols Creme De Banana
New Foundland Screech Golden Jamaican Rum
Lemon Hart 151

I love banana. Why doesn't this drink taste like banana? I know; because the creme de banana only makes up 20% of the drink. How does that make sense? Coupled with the fact that you are adding a 1/2 ounce of 151, there is no way for the banana flavor to stand out.

I didn't love this drink. It tasted too one-note, the orange and pineapple juices overwhelmed the drink with sweetness, the 151 overpowers the the rum and liqueur, and the name is way too creative. I hope I don't sound overwhelmingly negative; the drink tasted fine but my expectations were too high.

My personal rating: ** (2) out of ***** (5)
