Are you dreaming about the tropics? Just arrived back from the holidays? Planning on going on a tropical vacation very soon? Need a little lift for a blah February day? Have company coming over? I have just the right cocktail to take the blues away, Tropical Breeze Cocktail.
I had to think and think about this one. The name came to me quickly but the ingredients didn’t. I knew I wanted tropical juices and rum, but what else could I add that would be special and make this cocktail fantastic?
I have just come back from a cruise and had some delicious cocktails aboard ship but to be honest nothing as scrumptious as this one. What makes is so good, you ask? Creme de Banane for me, it was just what I was looking for. Sweet banana adds so much to the already wonderful tropical flavors. I like the little bit of grenadine in the bottom too, to add fun to the drink. Give it a stir and you have a pinky-orange delight!
All the flavors of the tropics are combined into this cocktail to give it a wonderful punch of taste. Orange, banana, pineapple, rum, and more. This combination lends itself to making this a delightful cocktail, one that you will want to make again and again. Close your eyes and feel the Tropical Breeze take you away. You deserve it, you have worked hard for it. Let the vacation begin!
- 1 Tbsp. grenadine
- 1 1/2 oz. gold or amber rum
- 1 oz. Creme de Banane Liquor
- 3 oz. orange juice
- 4 oz. pineapple juice
- In a tall hurricane glass add the grenadine. Top with ice. In a cocktail shaker add more ice and the rest of the ingredients. Shake well. Slowly strain and pour into the hurricane and serve with straws. Let the recipient stir the cocktail to get the pink coloring from the grenadine.
