Drink Party - "The Dirty Monkey"

Dirty Monkey (Tropical Umbrella Drink)

Dirty Monkey was first coined by "Jessica Meyers" as a request for a special drink poolside on the island of Maui. Dirty Monkey is a relative of Tropical Monkey and almost a clone. Dirty Monkey has the sides of the glass drizzles with chocolate syrup and with an umbrella in it. (Optional - Frozen Chocolate Banana can be added)

0.5 Banana
0.5 oz Chocolate Syrup
0.5 oz Irish Cream
0.5 oz Dark Rum
0.5 oz Congac
1.5 Scoop Ice Cream
1.5 cup Crushed Ice

Serving Size: 12 Ounces

Mix all ingredients together in a blender on high for 20 to 30 seconds. Pour into a deep wide glass, drizzle choclate syrup on the inside of the glass and garnish with a Frozen Chocolate Banana and an umbrella. This drink is a marvelous concoction that will leave you wanting more.

Jess and I were invited to the Gentry's Drink Party and I had to fly solo since Jess was working. Our concoction ended up receiving the "Classic Cocktail" Award. Go Dirty Monkey!
