The initial inspiration for this creation came from seeing the red banana trees growing on the Jags Head Coffee Farms in El Salvador. The large leaves give shade to the fragile coffee cherries. The bananas are soft and have a sweet flavour when ripe. Some say they taste like a regular banana, but with a hint of raspberry sweetness. Others find it a cross between a plantain and yellow banana.
Like most good plans it all started in a bar, but thanks to the pandemic, Red Banana Oleo was concieved on a virtual drinking session with the Ron Colón team. Who doesn’t like a good banana daiquiri?
