There are many cocktails that try to be “dessert in a drink” – and then there’s the banana cream pie cocktail. We all love pie, and it’s a delicacy that has been around for centuries, and can even be traced back to medieval times.
However, how many pies have their own day? Believe it or not – March 2 is “National Banana Cream Pie” day! Pie lovers are obsessed with how this treat manages to be a fresh fruit-cream-and-custard combination that is truly unique enough to have a day dedicated to it! It was only a matter of time before a cocktail tried to capture the same taste, and thus the banana cream pie cocktail was born.

Martinis don’t always have to be serious – they can be a sweet-tasting fun dessert drink. Banana cream pie martinis probably prove this more than any other drink out there. You can even choose to add half-and-half cream or milk to make the cocktail more of a dessert. If you’re really looking to give it something extra, rim your martini glass with crushed graham crackers, or add whipped cream on top! Enjoy one today!
