I don't know where this got it's name! Haven't made it yet, but it sounds yummy. I bet you could sub. 1 T. of creme de menthe for the mint syrup.

Wasn't sure about the combination of coffe, banana, mint and cinnamon. The frozen banana gave it an ice cream consistancy. I used peppermint schnaaps and I also thought the mint was a bit too prominant. Next time I think I would make without the mint and use a different flavoring like almond or vanilla. Mint and coffee just didn't do it for me, but the basic recipe is good.
