Banana Rum Fizzes

July 1994
Someone in our mid-’90s test kitchen obviously loved the combination of ice cream and booze. This is just one of many recipes that starts with “softened vanilla ice cream,” and they’re all pretty darn good.

1 cup softened vanilla ice cream
1/2 cup chopped banana plus banana slices for garnish
1 ounce (2 tablespoons) crème de cacao, or to taste
1 ounce (2 tablespoons) dark rum, or to taste
3/4 cup chilled club soda

In a blender blend ice cream and chopped banana until smooth but still thick and pour into 2 chilled stemmed glasses. Add crème de cacao, rum, and club soda and garnish with banana slices. Makes 2 drinks.
