Banana Mint Punch

Banana Mint Punch is a combination of two cocktails adapted to one new and exciting mix. Taking on old and forgotten recipes is very refreshing. I love researching and looking for exciting and old recipes. Recently, I found two cocktails I do like and decided to combine them in one new cocktail. Both cocktails are from the ’90s, and bot won competitions back in the days.

Banana Mint Punch Rum Cocktail

Banana Mint Punch is heavenly good

Both cocktails I found in THE BOLS BOOK OF COCKTAILS. The creators of both cocktails are two Bartenders, from Venezuela.

First cocktail: Mint Punch by Omar Machado: 1st NLC 1990 Cental.
  • 30ml Cacique Ron
  • 15ml Bols Creme de Bananas
  • 15ml Cinzano White Vermouth
  • 1 bar spoon Menthe Syrup
  • 1 bar spoon Pineapple Juice
Second Cocktail: Chilly by Miguel Angel Vera: 3rd NLC 1990 Aragua.
  • 30ml El Muco Ron
  • 15ml Bols Creme de Bananas
  • 15ml Frangelico
  • Fill up with Fruit Juice

Both Cocktails use different rums, but I decided to use the delicious Cargo Cult Banana Spiced Rum. The Rum contains two Rums. The first is from Papua New Guinea, and the second is from Fiji. Both Rums are then blended and spiced in Australia. The name of the Rum comes from Melanesian beliefs related to the American serviceman who arrived during the Second World War bringing with them goods such as cigarettes, tinned food and some essential medicines. Today cults still exist and beliefe the solders will one day return to bring prosperity once again.

Using this Rum, it’s a logical choice because of the Banana Liqueur and other ingredients I use to recreate and combine both cocktails in one.

Grab the recipe and give it a go. I promise is so so delicious you won’t be satisfied with only one cocktail. Also, you can check the blog and the post from our Rum Week on Instagram.
