Thirsty Thursday – The BBC
As simple as the recipe for the BBC (Baileys, banana and cream/colada) cocktail sounds, it’s amazing how many people actually don’t know how to make it or even what’s in it. There are variations – some have rum, some don’t, some use a pina colada mix while others use coconut cream or Coco Lopez. I guess the right recipe depends on your preference but to help us all out, I decided to turn to the experts and see how they preferred their BBC cocktails.
RumShopRyan – Ryan adds rum to his recipe (of course) and bases it on the drink served at Reggae Beach Bar in St. Kitts.
Sandals – Their BBC is a frozen version and uses a pina colada mix.
Beach Bar in St. John – If you’re going to drink a BBC, it might as well be at a beach bar. They also use rum but mix in Coco Lopez.
Food.com – Not just a site for food recipes. This one leaves out the rum.
