  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 25 ml of fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar (adjust to taste)
  • 1 cup of crushed ice
  • Banana slices and lime wheels for garnish

  1. Begin by peeling and slicing the ripe bananas.
  2. Place the banana slices in a blender along with the crushed ice.
  3. Add white rum, fresh lime and granulated sugar.

Top tip: Consider experimenting with various rum options, as the diverse styles and flavour profiles can significantly influence the cocktail’s sweetness and balance. Aged rums, for instance, have the tendency to enhance oak-driven nuances such as vanilla and caramel, while unaged, dry rums often emphasise grassy and fruity undertones.
