Great way to use your over ripe Banana’s if you’re like me I hate a mushy banana! 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 Banana, Lime & Simple Syrup in a martini shaker muddle a few times to mush up the banana , then add Mint lightly muddle so as not to bruise your Mint too much or it will make the drink bitter
Add Rum and a little ice. Shake approx. 4-6 seconds. Pour into a 12 oz glass of Ice & top with Pellegrino (or your favorite sparkling). Garnish with Banana and fresh Mint sprig on the edge of the glass! Mmmmm…!!!
12-16 oz Glass
1 oz Light Rum
5 Fresh Mint Leaves
1/2 Ripe Banana (the riper the sweeter & easier to muddle)
