I have a lot of bananas at the moment - too many to consume by just eating or cooking or using in general. What is the best way to use banana in a drink - assume that I have a fairly wide and varied bar to choose from for the base of the drink.

Bananas can go in any blended tropical drink fairly well. Any strawberry drink (daiquiri or margarita) can have bananas added. For obvious reasons though bananas would go better in a frozen drink than a "on the rocks" drink.

You can also peel bananas and freeze them and they will stay fine for a couple of months. The flesh will darken but they are perfectly OK to use. Take a frozen banana out and toss it into the blender for a smoothie or frozen cocktail.

In my opinion, bananas go well with the more tropical alcohols like rum, teqauila, triple sec, etc..

I suppose this is obvious, but how about the Banana Daiquiri.
