Created for National Rum Day (August 16), this banana-filled cocktail from Mother’s Ruin in NYC is a ton of fun. It is a drink with a delicious flavor and if you are not a fan of banana in your drinks you may want to give this one a shot because the spiced rum transforms the fruit's flavor into a whole new experience. This, I dare say, is one of the best banana cocktails you will find and takes the fruit to a level of delicious sophistication that is very rare.
To make the banana syrup, I've found it easiest to puree a banana and add it to the standard simple syrup recipe during the boil. Once the syrup is cool, strain out any banana chunks and you are ready to go.
