The Tropical Banana Flavor was launched in March 2007 in Canada and U.S.A. After a couple of researches showing the population’s demand for this flavor and seeing that bananas were then the no. 1 fruit consumed in the US, the launch of this new aroma was a natural move for the producers.
Malibu Tropical Banana mixes together the true taste of bananas with white rum, the results being a strong Caribbean bond, an outstanding clear flavor demarcation and a unique aroma. Although this smooth banana taste it’s like a call to enjoy more and more of this drink, you should keep in mind that there are about 70 calories for this aroma, so watch out girls!
Here are three cocktails’ examples using the Tropical Banana sort of rum:
Malibu Green Monkey
The ingredients for this cocktail are:
½ parts Malibu Tropical Banana rum
½ parts Midori melon liqueur
½ parts fresh sour
½ parts fresh pineapple juice
Put all together, mix and drink from a tall glass with ice.
Malibu Slippery Banana
This is one of my favorites, while it uses two sorts of Malibu rum:
0.5 oz Malibu Coconut Rum
0.5 oz Malibu Tropical Banana Rum
0.5 oz fresh pineapple juice
A bit of cherry juice for color
Malibu Tropical Sunrise
8 shots Malibu Tropical Banana Rum
4 shots triple sec
8 shots orange juice
8 shots pineapple juice
2 shot grenadine syrup
This is for four persons, so fill the glasses with crushed ice ( half of its should be enough ). Add triple sec, fresh orange and pineapple juice and rum, mix its and add grenadine syrup with the cherries on top.
