Have you ever heard of a BBC? No, not the news. The drink?
Apparently the BBC Drink a popular drink in the Caribbean. And our friends who recently went on a cruise made this cocktail for us. And now I’m sharing it with you.
A BBC Drink is a banana, Baileys 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 Drink recipe 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 BBC Drink, and while you’re deciding, I’m just going to enjoy this delicious beverage tonight!
HOW TO MAKE A BBC COCKTAIL
BBC Drinks are super easy to make. The hardest part is toasting some coconut to top the drink with – and that part is technically optional.
If you can push “start” on a blender, you can make a BBC cocktail!
This BBC Drink recipe uses cream of coconut for the “C” part of BBC. You can usually find cream of coconut next to the canned coconut milk – just make sure you don’t get coconut milk instead!
Cream of coconut is much thicker and will help make this drink super creamy and delicious.
To make the BBC cocktail, add the banana, Baileys, and cream of coconut to a blender along with plenty of ice to make it thick and cold. Blend until it is nice and smooth.
Each “recipe” makes two servings. One for me, and one for me. Ha!
Top each drink with whipped cream and toasted coconut if you like.
Obviously you can adjust the ingredients to serve as many (or as little) as you need. And of course, feel free to make your BBC Drink stronger by adding in more Baileys.
Please drink responsibly though, k?
DRINKS MADE WITH BAILEYS
Looking for other ways to use up that bottle of Baileys?
In addition to this frosty BBC Drink, there are lots of fun drinks made with Baileys that you can whip up throughout the year.
Try my recipe for The Perfect Tan – ice cream, Baileys and chocolate syrup. What could be better?
My friend Cathy’s Baileys Mint Martini is refreshing and a beautiful shade of mint green. For a different martini spin, try this Baileys and Kisses Candy Cane Martini from my friend Courtney. Or try this Irish Cream Pie Cocktail from my pal Dorothy.
Whether you shake up one of these drinks or pull out your blender for a BBC Drink, your friends will love these drinks made with Baileys.
