The BBC (Bailey's Banana Colada)

The BBC was the quintessential tropical cocktail of our honeymoon. The bananas grown in Saint Lucia are divine, and this tropical adult banana smoothie provided our daily potassium. We enjoyed several of these (a day) on our trip, and had the last one before boarding our shuttle to the airport. A definite favorite for hot pool days, or any day for that matter. 

the happy day we discovered the BBC

Of course, I just had to buy us a pretty new blender to make this tropical cocktail in big batches to share! 

The BBC (Bailey's Banana Colada)
makes 2 drinks

4 oz Dark Rum (we bought Appleton's special blend)
4 oz Bailey's Irish Cream Liqueur
1 ripe banana
1 oz Banana Liqueur
2 oz Pina Colada Mix
1 cup ice

Blend all the ingredients in a blender until smooth and the banana is incorporated. 

If you don't want to buy pina colada mix, you can use coconut milk and pineapple juice which are the ingredients that make up the mix. Just use one ounce of each.
