Recipe Notes

If you don’t use the banana juice straight away, it will oxidize and turn brown, but it will still taste good. You can use store bought banana juice too.

This drink is very filling, so even though it should be served in a cocktail glass like in the pictures, feel free to divide it into 2 Martini glasses and share, especially if you are serving it before dinner.
