The beauty of the Banana Split Martini is that you can change up the ingredients just like you can with a real banana split. By going with a flavored vodka you can add your favorite "topping." Strawberry, pineapple, coconut, or even more chocolate or banana are all good options and there are many others that you could play with.

The other choice you have is the garnish. You could go low-key and stick with the customary banana slice, or a lone strawberry, or pineapple slice, maybe adding a cherry. There's the strawberry and chocolate syrups drizzled in the bottom of the glass, and the decadent chocolate dipped strawberry or banana. This drink is completely customizable.
