Banana Creme Martini

Banana Creme Martini. Let that sink in. How good does that sound right about now? This is a great martini for a dessert martini or an any time martini, if you are on vacation. Hey, bananas constitute an acceptable breakfast food so why the heck not?

Dessert Martini

The banana creme martini probably sounds like a girly martini. Perhaps you are thinking it seems like it has no substance. However, I can assure you that this is a serious martini. It just so happens, that this serious martini is super creamy and delicious! Did you realize you could have both? I didn’t believe it until I tried it.

So what is in it that makes it so powerful? It consists of just 3 ingredients; vanilla vodka, banana liqueur, and Irish cream. Those 3 things are all that stands between you and this rich, banana martini. You have probably heard of vanilla vodka and Irish cream. If you haven’t heard of banana liqueur, surprisingly, this liqueur is a lot stronger than you would expect. One brand that I suggest is 99 Bananas. As the name implies, it is 99 proof! What’s crazy is how smooth it is. 99 proof! That’s along the lines of Bourbon and Whiskey. Those certainly are not girly drinks.


  • 2 oz Vanilla Vodka
  • 1 oz Irish Cream
  • 1 oz Banana Liqueur

Making The Banana Creme Martini

All you need to do is measure each part, put it in a shaker with ice, shake, and pour! If you ask me, that sounds a lot easier than making a banana creme pie! And you get a potent punch along with this heavenly dessert. If that sounds like a dessert you would want, make it!


  • Fill shaker 2/3 full of ice.
  • Measure all ingredients and add to shaker.
  • Shake well.
  • Pour into martini glass.

Garnishing The Martini Glass

Ideally, you want to play up this martini with a cool martini glass. Get the glass and garnish it with chocolate syrup. I know I mentioned this martini only consists of 3 ingredients, but to really push it over the edge, add the chocolate syrup around the inside of the martini glass. That little bit of chocolate will really bring this drink to a whole new level.

Have you started gathering your ingredients yet? If not, you need to get moving. You are wasting precious time!
