It never fails that when I head away on vacation, the first drink I order upon arriving at the resort is a Dirty Monkey. It’s the perfect, refreshing tropical drink. There just isn’t anything like it at home.
1 cup of ice
8 ounces of pinana colada mix
1 ounce kahlua
1 ounce vodka
1/2 of a banana
Add all ingredients to blender. Blend. Serve in hurricane glass.
It took a few years for me to lock down the recipe for a Dirty Monkey. Previously I had been enjoying an alternate recipe. It wasn’t the same, but it was good enough for home.
