Have you ever heard of a BBC? No, not the news. The drink?
Apparently it’s a popular drink in the Caribbean. And our friends who recently went on a cruise, made this drink for us. And now I’m sharing it with you. BBC is a Banana, Bailey’s Irish Cream and Coconut drink.
I think I might finally be panicking that the end of summer is upon us. Could be why I shared Pink Lemonade Cupcakes earlier this week, and now a super fun, cocktail today!
But, let’s be clear, this BBC is NOT only for summer. Yes, I imagine sipping this frosty drink on the beach is paradise. But, imagine this. Hot fire. Snuggled up in a blanket. Great book. Frosty drink. Yes?
You decide when the perfect time is for this drink, and while you’re deciding, I’m just going to enjoy this delicious beverage tonight!
Each “recipe” makes two servings. One for me, and one for me. Ha! Obviously you can adjust the ingredients to serve as many (or as little) as you need. And of course, feel free to make your drink stronger by adding in my BAILEYS. Please drink responsibly though, k?
