The Banana Hammock – Don’t Worry It’s A Cocktail

After one sip, you’ll be hiding your eyes.

There’s only one type of banana hammock I want to see on the beach, and that’s the cocktail. I wrote about “Beach Ethics” a while ago and banana hammocks are definitely one of those unwritten rules that should not be broken, at least not in the States. No one wants to see your bulge buddy!

A Boat Drink called the Banana Hammock, that’s another story. Castaway Jeremy McDaniel sent me this recipe the other day and I thought it would make a great post. Humorous name, mouthwatering ingredients and a perfect way to cool down with the heat of Summer knocking on the door.

The Banana Hammock Cocktail


  • 1 1/2 oz Cruzan Dark/Gold Rum (any rum would work)
  • 1 oz Cruzan Coconut Rum
  • 3/4 oz Banana Liqueur
  • 3oz Pineapple Juice
  • 2oz OJ

Mixing Instructions: Add all the ingredients to an ice filled glass. Shake. Garnish with banana slice. Raise glass and toast.

Fruit mixers and rum, you really can’t go wrong. Let me know if you mix up a Banana Hammock and if you like the taste. Oh, and please no emailing me banana hammock photos, the real ones I have in my dresser are all I need. Ha!

    This drink is most definitely the only banana hammock I want to see on the beach, too! I’ll have to give this one a try! 😀

    Thanks for the comment Margo! We have a good amount of German tourists here and they are all about the banana hammock! Yikes!

    The drink is also called a Fuzzy Coconut in a Banana Hammock, more fun to order.

    Ha! That would be more fun. Do expect a weird look from the bartender.
