Fresh bananas make a regular appearance in frozen drinks while banana liqueurs are often used in cocktails and are a popular ingredient in shooters. This list includes all of the drink recipes on this website that include banana in one form or another.

Fresh Banana Drinks:

Bananas are a common ingredient in frozen cocktails and smoothies and many times they are used to replicate a banana split. These recipes use fresh, peeled bananas for the most part, though some may use banana syrup (see Banana Hammock for tips) or banana juice.

A note about banana juice: Bananas have a surprising lack of juice in them and if you have an electric juicer this will be one of the few fruits mentioned in the instructions that you should not try to juice. How do we get banana juice, then? One method is to blend a cut banana with 1/2 cup of water or milk (which you choose should be determined by the final drink). Use the pulse setting and give it just a few whirls as it will mix up quickly. There are also a handful of bottled banana juice drinks available, though they can be difficult to find.

The banana ingredient is indicated for each recipe. Those with no notation use the fresh fruit.

Banana Liquor Cocktails:

Banana-flavored liquors are few, but they are available. Banana liqueurs are the most popular and are also called crème de bananes or banana schnapps. Popular brands include 99 Bananas, Marie Brizard, Bols, DeKuyper, and Hiram Walker. You may also come across recipes calling for banana-infused vodka, with Hampton's and Van Gogh being two of the brands that produce it.
