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.

Alternate “Dirty Monkey” Recipe
1 oz rum or vodka
1 oz creme de bananes
1 oz creme de cacao
1 oz Kahlua® coffee liqueur
2 scoops vanilla ice cream or milk
