Happy Hour: Monkey's Lunch

Happy Hour: Monkey's Lunch

I know what you're thinking: Why on earth is Yum drinking a banana-flavored cocktail with a ridiculous name? Well, sometimes a girl needs a silly, sugary drink — and sometimes a girl has a bunch of creme de banana left over from a bananas foster recipe. In search of a use for this odd liqueur, I headed to the Internet and found the Monkey's Lunch.

Though it may sound a bit off-putting, this drink was yummy enough that I drank the whole thing and would happily drink another. The banana flavor is very subtle, like a tropical twist on a White Russian. If it sounds a-peel-ing (sorry, couldn't resist), get the recipe when you

Monkey's Lunch


1 part creme de banana
1 part Kahlua
1 part milk

I'd TOTALLY drink up. I love both real banana flavor & "artificial" banana flavor (think banana Laffy Taffy).

I don't even like bananas in their organic form; distilling their essence and drinking it does not appeal much.

Thanks, Yum. On 4th of July I had some kind of banana concoction that I've since been craving. This crazy drink sounds like it would do the trick.
