This must be an endorsement drink for the Chiquita company. Not satisfied with the plethora of banana drinks you can make in a blender, they wanted to have the drink be their name and have bananas floating in it in a very visible way. This works out well for rum drinkers who don't necessarily want to fill up on bananas when there's rum to be had. The bananas add aroma without weighing the Chiquita down and making it a weak dessert drink. I'm not a huge fan of banana liqueur either, but the proportions are small enough not to be bothered with. If anything, I would double the quantity of orgeat syrup to keep it on the sweeter side.
  • 2 oz. light rum
  • 1/2 oz. lime juice
  • 1/2 oz. banana liqueur
  • tsp. orgeat syrup
  • 1/4 cup sliced bananas
Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Stir gently until chilled and pour into a chilled wine goblet.
