After one sip, you’ll be swinging from the trees.

Excuse me bartender, can you catch me one of those Chocolate Monkeys? Thank you…I’ll be sitting by the pool.

Just look at the ingredients for the Chocolate Monkey…light rum, chocolate syrup, bananas, ice cream…talk about a vacation in a glass. This rich concoction screams, drink me next to the pool while you relax under coconut palms at a cushy Caribbean resort. Don’t you agree?

I don’t see this as the type of drink you get the party started with, but maybe something to cool off the 90 degree sun or a fun dessert drink to relax with after a light lunch under the tiki bar. Whatever the reason you have for catching the Chocolate Monkey, it will leave you with a child-like smile and not a care in the world.
