Great way to use your over ripe Banana’s. I like making this for parties because you can make it in a pitcher as well, relax by the pool & have fun!
Cut 1/2 of your 1/2 cut Banana length wise reserving one half for a garnish
Add Mint, Banana, Lime & Simple Syrup in a martini shaker
Lightly muddle a couple of times so as not to bruise your Mint too much or it will make the drink bitter
Add Rum and a little ice. Shake moderately. Pour into a 12 oz glass & top with Pellegrino (or your favorite sparkling). Garnish with Banana and fresh Mint sprig on the edge of the glass! Enjoy!!!
