The Sip: Andy's Banana
The Sound: The Velvet Underground & Nico
When my boyfriend and I started Sips and Sounds way back when (originally Vinyl Vednesday), the "rule" was to only select records the other wasn't terribly familiar with. Because of that, there are a slew of classic records I've never featured...until now! This album is a favorite, and it also brought back fond memories of a couple of Halloweens ago. The indulgent (but suprisingly not super sugary) cocktail recipe is below!
In a blender, combine 1 chopped frozen banana, 1.5 oz clear rum, 1.5 oz rich stout beer of your choice, 1.5 oz unsweetened coconut milk and a teaspoon of cocoa powder. Blend until smooth. Top with whipped cream and a cherry if desired.
You can also skip the beer and use 3 oz of coconut milk for an even more milkshake-y experience.
