Banshee ~ Creamy Banana Cocktail with a kick ! #Cocktails #AlcoholicDrink

I thought it a good idea to end the month of April off, with a nice creamy Banshee Cocktail.

We have had so many long weekends during April and most were treated as mini vacations. Even though we stayed home – but we had lots of party food and of course a cocktail now and then.

My hubby joined my daughter and her boyfriend for a day and night, fishing. Now, fishing is just not my son and myself’s thing ! Instead, the two of us stayed home and enjoyed a Banshee or two 😉

The other day I mentioned to hubby that I want to look up what Banshee means, as we know the cocktail and also we watch BANSHEE on TV.

If you haven’t seen the series yet, it is about a town called “Banshee” where all kinds of crazy stuff happens.

Creamy Banana Cocktail with a divine kick !

I did finally look up what it means, and was quite surprised and maybe even a little horrified. It is an Irish saying which is roughly this :

A Banshee is a female family member (not sure whether alive or deceased) whose voice you can hear screaming, 3 nights in a row at the exact time – this means there will be death in the family soon.

Yes, not really what I expected – the internet is however, full of different versions, but the basic meaning is — Irish Death Bringer ..grr.

So, be careful drinking this cocktail meaning : do.not.overindulge ! Drink responsibly.
