Banoffee Pie Cocktail

I’ve just emerged from hibernation…meaning, spring has arrived and I’m itching to get back to enjoying the outdoors and packing away my snow boots. True story, spring is the best when you’ve gotten through a long an intense winter.

 

As I was thinking about all that I enjoy about spring, I was making a list of recipes that I plan on preparing. This is when I found my list from winter that I hadn’t gotten around to preparing.

This list included the amazing Banoffee Pie Cocktail, yup you read that correctly. The beloved pie in cocktail form, uh huh I went there.

What is Banoffee Pie?

Banoffee pie is a dessert pie made from bananas, cream and toffee, combined either on a buttery biscuit base or one made from crumbled biscuits and butter. Some versions of the recipe also include chocolate, coffee or both.

Where did Banoffee Pie originate?

Originally it was created in England by Nigel Mackenzie, a British restaurateur in 1972.

If you are like me, you may not have ever tried Banoffee Pie or let alone heard of it. It wasn’t until maybe 3 or 4 years ago that it entered into my radar and I’ve never looked back. 

Banoffee Pie comes in all variations like so many desserts. I’ve seen it made with store-bought graham cracker crust and non-dairy whipped topping to strictly homemade from scratch ingredients. 

So one day I was thinking about how tasty Banoffee Pie is and how it encompasses some of my very favorite flavors. I adore the flavors and decided they deserved to be combined into a cocktail.

What is Dulce de Leche?

Dulce de leche is a confection prepared by slowly heating sweetened milk to create a substance that derives its flavor from the Maillard reaction, also changing color, with an appearance and flavor similar to caramel. Dulce de leche is Spanish for “candy [made] of milk” or “caramel”.

Some tips for making Banoffee Pie Cocktails:

  • This recipe makes 2 cocktails.
  • Use a large blender if preparing more than 2 cocktails.
  • I used an immersion blender, it’s easy to clean and makes just the right amount for 2.
  • I used canned Dulce de Leche, found in the Hispanic Food section. 

I think you’ll find this drink to be one DELISH addition to your cocktail favorites. The flavors are so good together, it is a desserty drink that would be perfect for summertime sipping.
