The Talking Monkey can satisfy most of your everyday taste desires in one drink. It is a creamy dessert drink with Van Gogh Dutch Chocolate Vodka (for the sweet tooth), banana liqueur (for the sweet fruity flavor) and (for the caffeinated indulgence) Van Gogh Espresso Vodka and coffee liqueur. It reminds me of a banana split with a jolt. Try a Talking Monkey after a hefty meal for a sweet dessert cocktail that brings you back from the sleepy, full stomach feeling.

Talking Monkeys' are delish, but deadly!, Member Lisaisamixologygoddess

Talking Monkey's are quite delicious, but I would limit myself to one. If 99 Bananas is used, I would modify the pour to a 1/2 shot or even a dash, as it is 100 proof and tends to dominate the flavor in the drink.
