Dirty Monkey Recipe
I hope someone can help. We were in Cabo last February and this past October. We had a great drink called a "Dirty Monkey" It was a blended drink with a coconut/banana taste to it. I have tried looking up the recipe on several cocktail website, but it is not the same.

I hope someone can help me out.

The ones we've had were similar to this:
1 oz rum or vodka
1 oz creme de bananes
1 oz creme de cacao
1 oz Kahlua® coffee liqueur
2 scoops vanilla ice cream or milk

Blend six ice cubes with ice-cream in a blender until smooth. Add liqueurs and continue blending, again until smooth. Add more ice-cream if needed (for milk-shake consistency). Pour into a highball glass, and serve.

Thank you schmerl!!!

We are going to a blender party Sat. night, so this will come in handy.

YOu can also throw in a half of a banana. Makes it more like a milkshake!

Okay, I have been lurking around following this.

It sounds wonderful and I have some coconut rum already will have to try it!

Thanks everybody!

Congratulations! I'm glad I could help. I've had them where the bartender drizzled chocolate syrup down the sides of the glass before pouring the drink in it. Extra YUM!
