I’ve been enjoying these little picture based instructions for recipes i’ve made and enjoy so I thought I’d do another. This is a tiki drink called the banana mamacow. i’m told its a combination of two drinks - banana mama and the banana cow. I believe the credit goes to Martin of the Forbidden Island and more recently of Smuggler’s Cove.
I’ve had the drink frequently at FI and have taken to making it at home. On a hot day like today its refreshing and delicious. Its also a great use for very ripe bananas if you don’t want to make banana bread.
Start with a handful of ice in the old blender. I only use filtered water in my ice cubes but i am obsessive.
Next one (or two) bananas in there.
2 oz of white rum. i didn’t have any white rum handy so i used a Cruzan Aged which is not a bad substitute. My only rule is no Bacardi in this house. Sorry.
next half an ounce of banana liqueur. I use 99 Bananas. It does the trick.
now one ounce of coco lopez. i cheat and use coco real. It is more convient for me but once i get down to the bottom of the bottle i have to cut open the bottle to get at the remaining bit which is less convenient. so pick your method of hassle.
blend. my blender has a frozen drinks button which is wayy too easy. blend till it is smooth.
pour and serve. i apologize my presentation leaves much to be desired. but the drink doesn’t require a lot of presentation to be good. it just IS.
Thank you Martin Cate. You rule.
