While you may not be able to head to the tropics this weekend, one umbrella drink is sure to take the edge off your island wanderlust (while paying homage to Arrested Development’s iconic “banana stand” mantra).
Dallas-based cocktail haven, Henry’s Majestic, recently debuted its “tiki as f#!k” cocktail, “There’s Always Money in the Banana Stand,” featuring two different rums, banana liqueur, cinnamon syrup, lime & orange juice and bitters. Henry’s takes it up a notch by pairing this summer libation with a parasol and a frozen chocolate banana.
