Brûléed Banana Daiquiri
Brûléed Banana
  • 1 banana
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 ounce dark rum
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice, freshly squeezed
  • 2-4 tablespoons simple syrup (more or less for sweetness preference)
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 ounces white rum
  • 3 cups ice
  • 1 ounce half & half (or cream if you're feeling wild)
Brûléeing Bananas
  1. Slice banana, still with peel on, in half lengthwise, leaving you with two long halves.
  2. Heat a skillet or grill pan or grill itself over medium/medium-high heat.
  3. Combine dark rum and honey in small bowl.
  4. Use a brush to cover the exposed side of the banana halves generously with the mixture.
  5. Grill the exposed banana until grill marks show, with darkened caramelized finish, about 3-4 minutes.
  6. Remove and place on plate with grilled side facing upward.
  7. Brush additional rum/honey mixture on banana and using a constantly moving kitchen torch to brûlée the top gently, taking care to not burn the mixture. Do this just as you would for a crème brûlée.
  8. Repeat for other half and allow bananas cool completely.
Finish Cocktail
  1. Combine the cooled banana halves with all remaining ingredients except the half&half/cream in a quality blender. I prefer the Breville Boss.
  2. Blend well until smooth.
  3. Add cream and pulse momentarily to just combine.
  4. Adjust sweetness as desired with to addition or simple syrup.
  5. Pour and enjoy! -- More recipes on!
