Banana Rum Cocktail + Banana Coconut Chocolate Bar

"My favorite rum cocktail is one that I make with banana skin infused simple syrup. Banana skins are something a lot of people usually waste but they hold such great flavor!" -Katrina

Banana Skin Simple Syrup:

  • 2-3 whole Banana Skins, ripe 
  • 1 cup Simple Syrup 


Prepare by preheating oven to 350° F and slicing banana skins into small rectangles (discarding the stem and bottom)

Place skins into a saucepan and cover with simple syrup.

Bring to a boil.

Once boiling, remove from heat and place an oven-safe saucepan into the oven to roast.

Roast for 8-10 minutes to create banana skin simple syrup infusion.


  • 2oz Appleton Estate Dark Rum 
  • 4oz Banana Skin Simple Syrup 
  • 2-3 dashes Angostura Bitters 
  • 1 slice of banana round


Pour rum, banana skin simple syrup, and bitters over ice. Stir quickly.

Skewer and garnish with a banana round.

Serve alongside our Banana Coconut Exotic Chocolate Bar.
