There are many different recipes.

The dirty monkey we had at the lobby bar was made with vodka or rum, banana liquor, kahlua or tia maria, cream or milk, half a banana all put in a blender with some ice. It's great if you add some ice cream too. Some places decorate the glass with chocolate syrup!

Is that a dirty banana or dirty monkey?

A dirty monkey I thought was:

- 1 1/2 oz bailey's irish cream

- 1 oz rum (dark)

- 1 1/2 oz cognac

It's one of those monkeys at the zoo that you turn your kids' heads away from.
