The Smooth Operator is a banana based cocktail – and I don’t mean banana flavor, I mean you blend half a banana in with this drink to give it a rich creamy texture and flavor. And rich is is – the banana is accompanied by heavy cream and healthy doses of Frangeligo, Kahlua and Bailey’s.
Get out your blender and fire it up! These drinks are made with ice cream, ice, nuts and other thick or solid ingredients that have to be blended until they're like a slushy or a shake.

Can’t decide whether you want ice cream or cookies? Or maybe even coffee? Fear not: the Kahlua Cookie cocktail solves your problems of indecision by throwing it all in a blender and pureeing it into a creamy, frothy treat. This recipe calls for “three chocolate cookies”, which is rather vague. Could be chocolate chip, Oreos,
The Caramel “J” is one of those drink recipes you might refer to as an alcoholic milkshake. The addition of a ripe banana makes it especially smooth and rich. It’s definitely dessert in a glass. Serve up the Caramel “J” at parties where you want to keep guests happy but prevent any serious inebriation. The
The Haitian Gold cocktail has so much fruit juice, you could almost mistake it for a health drink. It’s not, though. It’s just a lovely fruity, fairly strong cocktail that’s sweet enough to be a dessert drink. Enjoy a Haitian Gold anytime you’re craving a fruity drink with a kick. It’s great paired with salty
The Fruit Fly is a blended cocktail – in fact, it’s basically a fruit and whiskey smoothie. It’s a very simple recipe that doesn’t specify the amount of whiskey, so you can make it as strong or light as you want, depending on the occasion. Whiskey goes surprisingly well with fruit, especially when you add
The Checkerboard cocktail is another variation on that noble tradition: cocktails that taste like chocolate milkshakes. This one uses amaretto for a distinctive touch.
