There’s a giveaway at the bottom of this post 😉

Come mister tally man, tally me bananas… Does that make anyone else think of Beetlejuice? That was my first thought when I tried the Blue Chair Bay Banana Rum (sent to us for Thirsty Thursday!) I couldn’t believe how smooth it was, not like some of the other banana flavored and/or infused liquors I’ve had. Some just set your throat on fire and I’m not a big fan of that. After a bit of experimenting with the Blue Chair Bay Banana Rum Grace came up with this week’s Thirsty Thursday drink.

Thirsty Thursday: Banana Cake Shot

If you happen to be a fan of banana cake then this shot is definitely a winner. I added my own twist to lessen the alcohol content that you can try as well.

Save RecipeSave Recipe


  • 1 part Blue Chair Bay Banana Rum
  • 1 part Hazelnut Liqueur
  • Dash of cinnamon
  • Ice


Mix the alcohols with the ice and strain into shot glasses.

Top with a dash of cinnamon and drink straight down.

For a smoother, thicker shot add another part milk to the top of the shot and drink immediately.

Blue Chair Bay is a collection of premium-blended rums by singer-songwriter Kenny Chesney. There are four original flavors – Banana, Coconut, Spiced Coconut, and White. Now I’m a huge Kenny Chesney fan so immediately I was excited to try his rum. Like I said before, the banana rum is extremely smooth. It is perfect for creating tropical inspired drinks or even simple cocktails like this one.

The Blue Chair Bay website has some great recipes that I can’t wait to try. I used the “Where to Buy” option on their website to see where I need to go to find more Blue Chair Bay rums. Turns out there are a ton of places to get it nearby! Be sure to check it out so you can get yours ASAP. With the holidays upon us I think the Spiced Coconut rum would make some holiday guests super happy! What a great replacement to the tired Eggnog people normally drink.

I can highly recommend the Blue Chair Bay brand and the recipes on their site. And I’m not just saying this because of my lingering crush on Mr. Chesney. So, head out and pick some up and then be sure to connect with Blue Chair Bay on their social media channels.
