Review:

Trader Vic writes of his drink, "the world's finest, greatest, oh-so good peachy hangover special. This'll do when nothing else will." Perhaps Vic is somewhat overselling this malty banana meal of a drink.

History:

Created by Victor J. Bergeron, this recipe is adapted from his 1948 Bartender's Guide... Trader Vic.

BANANA COW
1 crushed ripe banana
3 oz. whole milk
2 level tsp. bar sugar
1½ oz. Puerto Rican rum
Shake with crushed ice or mix in electric mixer; strain into large glass. Note: This drink is good for children, omitting the rum. Be sure the banana is ripe.
