I'm so glad to know I'm not the only one who gets back from Sandals and is wanting a dirty banana!!!! LOL ... Going to the store ....

Several bartenders at Beaches Turks & Caicos made their own variations. The "real" recipe depends on who made yours. I like:
Tia Maria
Rum Cream
Spiced Rum (floated or on the bottom)

you can add malibu coconut and malibu banana... another good trick is to add just a tiny bit of cinnamon.

We stayed at Sandals Caryle INN MB June 2010 and I fell in love with Dirty Banannas and tequila sunrises! Yum I can't wait to try these receipes out!

Just got back from Beaches Negril our favorite bartender was Oshane (not irish) and he made a "very dirty" banana.....delish! white rum, dark rum, creme rum, simple syrup, banana, in a blender with ice and dark rum in the straw. Thanx Oshane!

Just got back from Negril and they used Blue Mountain coffee liqueur, a small banana, milk ice and 1 ingredient I don't know of, but I'm thinking it's rum...because everything is better with rum!! : )

a real dirty banana has poop on it!

By Pamsie on February 9th, 2011 at 15:13:46

At our resort, each bartender made them differently, so I can only imagine there are 1000's of variations. I going to try the one posted and the variations listed too. Thanks for posting the one you enjoyed, Jason!

We were at Beaches Boscel Jamaica... Dirty Banana's was the breakfast drink for us!!!!

I went to gay week at Sandals and got tons of dirty bananas! Mmmm!

By Gene on January 1st, 2011 at 16:00:09

I had a dirty banana at the salty dog in hilton head and LOVED it---trying to find the recipe--any one know????

you guys have it all wrong. Just came back from Coconut Bay Resort in St. Lucia.

Dirty Banana Recipe is
Chairman's Reserve Rum
Coconut Milk
Irish Cream

By fern on November 1st, 2010 at 19:57:25

It's Jamaica Rum Cream
and blend. PUt as much as you want.
If you want it dirty then add the rum through the straw!
I asked the bartender at the resort

By Matt on September 30th, 2010 at 10:08:32

just got back from Sandals Grand St Lucia yesterday - this is NOT the recipe. i would like the real recipe.. SO good

By Sue on September 28th, 2010 at 10:02:16

Just went to Jamaica Negril in August of 2010. love love the dirty banana...just can't get the correct recipe down.

By Mitch on August 20th, 2010 at 06:58:59

Idk about Sandals but you want an awesome dirty banana try this:
Glass full of ice
1 shot. creme de cacao, dark
1 shot. vodka
1 shot. kahlua coffee liquor
1/2 a banana.

Thats how you make a dirty banana.

By Jason Swafford on July 29th, 2010 at 06:03:04

This recipe was given to me by one of the bartenders at Sandals Grande St. Lucian in October 2004. Other resorts may use a slightly different version, however this is the real one.

By david on July 11th, 2010 at 17:15:45

I was at Sandals Antiqua in Sept 09 and this is the receipe. I know because I watched them make it enough times to know. If this isn't it then what is the real one? Did anyone ask the bartender making these drinks for them what are the ingredients? They also did use real bananas because I couldn't get this drink because they ran out of real ones and they didn't use any banana drink substitute.

By Patty on June 20th, 2010 at 16:48:45

we just got back from Beaches in Jamaica and they are yummy, but this isn't the receipe they used at the resort.

By Lisa on June 12th, 2010 at 18:58:27

Just came home from Sandals today this is not the recipe. For one thing Kahlua is poured t=in the bottom of the glass first, and there is a banana liqueur in it. These things I know for sure but I would love the whole recipe

By hhulin on June 1st, 2010 at 16:54:42

I was just there May 2 2010 on honeymoon and loved this drink!! That is not the correct recipe!

By louis on March 21st, 2010 at 16:54:22

just got back from sandals royal carribbean and fell in love with this drink. i drank enough of them to know that this is not the recipe used at the resort. would love to know the real one!!!

By Anita on January 23rd, 2010 at 12:23:13

Just back from Sandals Antigua & drank these - mmmmmm delish!!

By Theresa on December 29th, 2009 at 15:51:23

My husband and I went to Jamaica 12 years ago and these were great!! brings back the memories. thanks

By Michelle on October 11th, 2009 at 14:09:27

By Pam on September 21st, 2009 at 16:11:38

WOW We fell in love with these little tummy warmers at Sandals MB Jamaica. Taste + protein you can't go wrong (however the calories will sneak up on you and your waist!)

By Kris on August 13th, 2009 at 17:57:58

My husband rarely drinks.. but on our honeymoon he fell in love with the Dirty Banana!

By Evan on August 13th, 2009 at 08:54:50

The Dirty Banana drink at Sandals is like a velvet hammer...no velvet sledge hammer.

You can not taste the rum.

By becky on August 7th, 2009 at 18:37:10

my husband who is an avid beer drinker tried one of my dirty banana's while we were at the sandals inn in april and now he loves them. i am soooo stoked to find the recipe

By Jean on June 5th, 2009 at 13:48:23

I was at Sandals drinking these Dirty Banana's and they are very good. But they will sneak up on you.
