A Chocolate Banana Creme Martini sounds absolutely delicious. I mean, if you love the taste of bananas and chocolate mixed together, this creamy martini will definitely get your attention. Who doesn’t love chocolate? And bananas are good for you, right? All kidding aside, I don’t think a chocolate banana martini will be a substitute for your potassium intake, however, it sure can be a substitute for your usual dessert craving.
This soon-to-be favorite dessert martini consists of vanilla vodka, chocolate liqueur, Irish Cream, and Banana Liqueur. A Banana Creme Martini might sound like a wishy-washy drink or fake martini, but I can assure you that this is not a martini to mess around with. The ENTIRE drink consists of alcohol and you should drink this responsibly. Keep an eye on your children, if they are around while you are drinking this. This looks like a yummy milkshake, but it is an adult drink that they should not have at their fingertips.
What To Look For When Shopping For Ingredients
As previously mentioned, this martini consists of all alcoholic ingredients. Therefore, you will need to make a trip to the liquor store (or packy as we Bostonians like to call it!) to make the Chocolate Banana Creme Martini. The majority of ingredients can be found in the cordial/mixers aisle. My favorite liqueurs for this martini are 99 Bananas, Bailey’s Irish Cream, Godiva Chocolate Liqueur, and Veil Vanilla Vodka.
Basically, if you like the taste of chocolate-banana, you will love the taste of this Chocolate Banana Creme martini. If you are worried about calories, this might not be the drink for you…at least not on a regular basis. Life is all about balance, however. Skip dessert, substitute this drink for your dessert. Balance! Additionally, if you are looking to reward yourself, treat yourself to this yummy martini!
