Banana Cow Cocktail

Banana CowWhen all the guys are ordering Boiler Maker’s it’d take some resolve to ask for (and explain how to make) this seemingly silly banana drink but it’s not too sweet and is actually quite refreshing. It’s easy to adjust the sweetness by tweaking the quantity of Crème de Banana and a splash of dark rum wouldn’t hurt this if you feel experimental.

A further alteration is that instead of cream we usually will substitute vanilla soy milk which is far less rich.

Combine the following in a shaker ⅔ full of ice

1½ ounce of cream
1 ounce of light rum
1 ounce of Crème de Banana
dash of Grenadine

Shake well and strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with banana slices and sprinkle with grated nutmeg.

Williams Sonoma Cosmopolitan

Combine following in a shaker ⅔ full of ice

2 ounces citrus vodka
½ ounce triple sec
½ ounce cranberry juice cocktail
½ fresh lime juice

Shake well and strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a slice of lime.

This makes a drier, less sweet version of a cosmo. Often we even skip the citrus vodka and use an unflavored vodka.
