While bananas are popular in general – some people don’t realize just how popular they are. In fact, they have been part of our diets as human beings as years – as there is evidence that we have included them in our diet as early as 500 B.C! In fact, over 100 billion bananas are eaten each year, which makes it – you guessed it: the most popular fruit in the world.

As a result, a banana split has become an American tradition, that originated in Latrobe, Pennsylvania, in 1904, and has been popularized over the following decades through companies like Walgreen’s promoting it as a signature dessert. There is a banana pie martini – and the dessert is arguably more popular than banana pies – so why wouldn’t there be a banana split martini? Well, there is.

Ingredients:

  • 2 ounces white chocolate liqueur
  • 1 fluid ounce strawberry vodka
  • ½ teaspoon chocolate syrup
  • Ice

Preparation:

  1. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice.
  2. Add the liqueur and vodka over the ice,
  3. Top it off with the crème de banana liqueur and chocolate syrup to make the drink sweet.
  4. Cover and shake the ingredients until the outside is frosted.
  5. Strain the resulting concoction into a chilled glass.

Equipment:

  • Cocktail shaker
  • Martini glass

Banana splits are amazing – and bananas are amazing. The world agrees, and have been agreeing for thousands of years. Whatever your preference with banana splits, whether you enjoy certain flavors of ice cream – strawberry, vanilla, or chocolate – you can adjust your cocktail accordingly. Enjoy the perfect dessert martini today with a banana split martini – and feel free to garnish it with a maraschino cherry on top!
