Banana Moos

When I first had a Banana Cow, it was many, many years ago (probably about 25-the youngest wasn't born yet, the eldest was probably about 3) on the beautiful island of St. Lucia. We called them Banana Moos because after a few of these you will be mooing for some more. They just sort of slide down. It was an all-inclusive place we stayed at - need I say more? There was a lot of merriment and maybe some over indulgence. Ahhh youth...

Banana Moos

3oz Banana Liquer
3oz White Rum
3oz Heavy Cream
1 banana
Nutmeg, optional

Place all the ingredients (except for the nutmeg) in a blender and let it whiz around. Pour into a glass and top with fresh grated nutmeg.

Cinnamon is also a really nice topper. Or if you want to get real wild try a little burnt cinnamon simple syrup mixed in.  Mr. Boston says to add grenadine. We did not have any. Nor did we have sufficient ice (the Sous Chef is slacking off). But that didn't stop us. Besides the grenadine wasn't in the drink in St. Lucia either. I think they used a simple syrup and no banana Liquer - just straight up rum.  Experiment - what could possibly go wrong?
