The Irish Encounter is a fun frozen cocktail that is similar to a Pina Colada, only different. You will find in this drink a mix of banana, coconut, Irish cream, and rum and it is a delicious mix that will cool you down on the hottest of days. While another rum will work in this drink, I think you will find that the unique notes, particularly the citrus, of Pyrat XO Reserve are a nice accent here. Also, make sure that you blend this one up until the ice is nice and smooth for a better drinking experience.

What You'll Need

  • 3 ounces coconut milk
  • 1/3 banana (ripe)
  • 1/2 ounce Bailey's Irish Cream liqueur
  • 1 1/2 ounce Pyrat XO Reserve Rum
  • 1 scoop of ice
  • Garnish: whipped cream
  • Garnish: toasted coconut flakes

How to Make It

  1. Place all ingredients in a blender.
  2. Blend for 15 to 20 seconds, or until smooth.
  3. Pour into a margarita or hurricane glass.
