Let’s take a break from lemon margaritas and strawberry daiquiris, and instead, put the spotlight on these banana-flavored cocktails. 

Homemade Banana Daiquiri with Cherries

You won’t believe how delectable a simple banana liqueur can transform a basic cocktail.

From banana martini to banana sunrise, these recipes add a fun, tropical twist to your favorite classic drinks. 

Whether you’re having an awesome summer party or an intimate nightcap, these a-peel-ing banana cocktails will not disappoint.

Let’s get the party started.

1. Frozen Banana Daiquiri

Let’s kick things off with this thick and frothy frozen banana daiquiri.

With a perfect balance of sweet and tart, this drink is a must-have at every summer party.

With this recipe, you’ll blend together rum, orange liqueur, lime juice, and an actual banana to achieve that delectable tropical flavor. 

If you’ve never tried the combination of banana and citrus – let me just put it this way: it’ll surely blow your tastebuds away.

2. Banana Split Cocktail

Delight the child in you by whipping up this scrumptious banana split cocktail! Friday night plans must always include this insanely delicious cocktail.

A mix of Kahlua, banana liqueur, milk, and pineapple juice with cherries on top creates a remarkable drink that’ll remind you of sunsets at the beach. 

It’s sweet, creamy, with the unbelievably refreshing combination of banana liqueur and pineapple juice.

Make it even more special by blending in a few scoops of ice cream.

3. Dirty Banana Frozen Cocktail

What do you get when you combine a ripe banana with vodka, cream, Kahlua, and chocolate syrup? A ridiculously addictive cocktail, that’s what!

Called the dirty banana, this cocktail is the ultimate chocolate banana milkshake for adults.

The use of a fresh banana really makes the banana flavor shine through.

If you’ve had and enjoyed the Mexican dirty monkey cocktail, you’ll definitely fall for this version as well. It’s so good it’ll give you goosebumps.

4. Rumchata Banana Cream Pie Cocktail

This pie and cocktail mash-up is absolutely one for the books. Desserts turned into cocktails are always such a fun treat. 

The presentation alone makes it a cut above the rest.

The cocktail glasses are rimmed with finely crushed graham crackers to complete that banana cream pie appeal.

It’s not just about the looks, though. A combination of banana liqueur and cream liqueur, this simple 2-ingredient mix is shockingly delicious.

5. Chunky Monkey Cocktail

Chocolate and banana are a match made in heaven, and this cocktail is the proof.

Its name alone will get you intrigued! But it’s the flavor that will leave you wanting more.

A blend of cacao liqueur, banana liqueur, chocolate ice cream, milk, and chocolate syrup, this cocktail is the stuff of legends.

I’m already drooling just thinking about it.

Think the popular Ben and Jerry’s ice cream flavor, but in cocktail form.  

6. Chocolate Banana Martini

The classic martini usually has a smooth, mild flavor.

A mix of gin and vermouth with a lemon twist, I consider it a fancy cocktail that caters to those with a sophisticated palate.

As I don’t belong under that category, I like to switch things up and give it a nice banana flavor.

Blending together vodka and chocolate and banana liquor, you’ll get a unique martini that may be a far cry from the original, but delicious nonetheless.

It’s still not as sweet as most of the cocktails on this list, but its mild banana and chocolate flavors give it an extra oomph.

7. Tropical Breeze Rum Cocktail

If you love combining different tropical flavors into one, you’ll definitely fall for this cocktail.

The tropical breeze rum cocktail is a blend of pineapple juice, banana rum, and lemon-lime soda.

It’s sweet, but the tartness of the lemon and pineapple gives it a wonderful flavor balance.

Its vibrant hue alone will already make you feel refreshed. One sip of it will instantly whisk you away to the Caribbean.

8. Banana Margaritas

There’s lemon, strawberry, and mango margaritas, but have you ever tried a banana margarita?

If you haven’t, take this as a sign to do so! Trust me, you won’t regret it.

This banana margarita is an epic combination of triple sec, fresh bananas, tequila, and limeade concentrate. 

If you can’t picture what it tastes like, let me help you out: it’s seriously, seriously delicious.

The combination of bananas and limeade is out-of-this-world amazing!

9. Bananas Foster Cocktail

Let’s take a moment to appreciate how beautiful this cocktail is. It’s Insta-worthy, to say the least.

And the taste? OMG, it will definitely blow your tastebuds away. 

How can it not, when it’s a combination of ice cream, spiced rum, banana liqueur, bananas, and cinnamon sugar? It’s heaven in a glass!

10. BBC Cocktail

The letters stand for bananas, Bailey’s, and coconut. It couldn’t get any better than that.

Just with the blend of bananas and cream of coconut alone, you can already tell how ridiculously delicious it is.

These two tropical flavors will surely tickle your taste buds.

Then there’s the Bailey’s. This creamy, nutty liquor is the perfect boozy infusion to give the cocktail that extra oomph.

Together, they create one indulgent cocktail you won’t soon forget.

11. Banana Puddintini

Can’t decide between a dessert or o cocktail to cap off your evening? Why not have both?

Banana puddintini is a fun spin on classic banana pudding.

This cocktail/dessert mash-up has a combination of banana vodka, whipped vodka, cream, and crushed vanilla wafers around the rim.

Warning: it tastes just like banana pudding, so it’s hard to stop at one. Indulge responsibly!  

12. Sweet Seduction

This sweet concoction of rum, banana, and pineapple is very alluring, indeed. Its sweet and fruity flavors are so good they’ll make you shiver.

Enjoy this sweet seduction for an evening refreshment or an afternoon delight. 

13. Tropical Breeze Cocktail

Can’t wait for your next trip to the beach? While waiting, enjoy a glass or two of the tropical breeze cocktail!

In this cocktail, you’ll get all the tropical flavors you can imagine. Banana, pineapple, and citrus – all spiked with rum.

It’s the tropical treat you didn’t know you needed.

14. Banana Old-Fashioned

While I don’t like using banana syrup for banana bread and other baked goods, I highly recommend it for this cocktail! 

Banana syrup is notorious for having that artificial banana flavor that doesn’t translate well in baked goods.

However, when you use it to make cocktail drinks, it’s an entirely different story.

A blend of bourbon, black walnut bitters, orange peel, and banana syrup, this cocktail is cozy, warming, and delicious.

15. Banana Rum Milkshake

What do you get when you combine banana pudding and milkshake and turn it into a drink? This banana rum milkshake cocktail, that’s what.

Banana, rum, milk, ice cream, and vanilla – it can’t get any better than that.

I love how this cocktail is both a refreshment, dessert, and boozy drink all at the same time.

16. Salted Caramel Banana Mango Daiquiri

Salted caramel, bananas, and mangoes join forces to create one of the most taste bud-tingling daiquiris ever.

Why stick to one flavor when you can combine three?

It’s sweet and tropical with a luscious, salted caramel twist. My goodness.

One sip of this daiquiri will make you feel so good, it’s like getting a giant hug.

17. Banana Sunrise Cocktail

Coconut, bananas, and rum alone already make for a perfect summer cocktail.

Throw in citrus to the mix and you’ll get an even more heavenly concoction. 

Who needs the beach when you have a glass of this cocktail on your hand? One sip will take you straight to a tropical paradise.
