This was a nice drink to share on Valentine's Day. I prefer sweet drinks over sour, but even for me this was a little too sweet. I liked the balance of juice and alcohol, wasn't too strong/too weak. I may switch around the banana and vodka amounts and see if that works...Made for PRMR.
Wow! I never would have thought to use these together! They make a lovely drink! I can see where Bev got the 'cinnamon candy' flavor from. It does takes like red hots without the HOT. lol At first I followed your directions and used a cocktail shaker with ice. After a few sips I thought... hmm this would be great with the ice left in it too! It was! Yesterday was our first HOT day so far so maybe I was just really thirsty! lol This went down very smoothly and was even refreshing! Thank you so much lazyme for sharing all your recipes! We love you! Made for cookathon for Lazyme!
What a lovely little concoction this is! I'm sipping as I type and am thrilled with the flavor. I don't taste the cinnamon candy flavor that Bev did, but more of a light, fruity burst. I did use Cold River Vodka which is a potato vodka made here in Freeport, Maine which I have found to be really smooth. Thanks lazyme, I never seem to go wrong with one of your recipes!!
I had a little cranberry juice cocktail in the fridge and discovered this recipe so thought I would give it a go. This is so amazing! I never would have suspected that this combination of flavors would have produced what seems to me to be the same flavor as cinnamon candies (or "Red Hots"). This drink has such a beautiful color. It would be the perfect drink to serve for Valentine's Day : )
