Mixology Monday XXVI

Fruit Liqueur is the theme for this edition of Mixology Monday hosted by the ever wonderful Anna from Morsels and Musings.

With a veritable feast of fruit liqueurs to choose from I finally settled on one - Crème de Banana. But what should I make with it?

Inspiration and thirst came upon me quite quickly as I spied the bottle of Malibu lurking on the shelf and I thought I'd combine the two with some fresh banana and milk to create a creamy taste of the Caribbean.
