The Banilla Splash is a friendly little cocktail. There’s absolutely nothing intimidating about this drink. It’s got vodka that’s flavored vanilla, a liqueur that’s banana flavored, and plenty of fruit juice – orange, mainly, with a touch of cranberry. It’s sweet and easy going, and you could even have it with your breakfast.
Have a Banilla Splash when you need a bit of a “pick me up” – the natural sugars and vitamins in the fruit juice energize you while the alcohol makes you all happy and relaxed. This one’s just lovely when you’ve had a fairly crappy day (as opposed to a super crappy day, when only a martini will do).
- 1 ounce vanilla vodka
- 1 ounce creme de banane
- 4 1/2 ounces orange juice
- 1 1/2 ounces cranberry juice
Fill a hurricane glass with ice cubes, pour in all the ingredients and stir well. Garnish with a maraschino cherry.
