Mandingo Gringo

This drink is bananas! It is also a nod to Jamaica distilling and, in my rendition, a recipe very local to Virginia. Here the aged Vite rum and MurLarkey banana whiskey make for a tropical escape. And why not? Virginia is an old colony state that engaged in the rum trade and whiskey rebellion. You can find palm trees here and hot, tropical weather. We even put pineapples ornaments on gates and door frames as a sign of welcome.
  • 1 1/2 oz. Jamaica dark rum (Appleton would be perfect, but having none, I used Vitae barrel aged rum)
  • 1/2 oz. creme de banane (MurLarkey banana whiskey used)
  • 2 oz. pineapple juice
  • 1 oz. orange juice
  • 1/2 oz. lime juice
 Combine all ingredients in a blender with ice. Blend until smooth and pour into a chilled Collins glass.
