Vanilla ice cream is an important ingredient in spiked bananas foster ice cream rum nog. For this reason I recommend using good quality ice cream. Butterscotch sauce, black spiced rum and cinnamon also go into this banana cocktail.

Although dairy-free ice cream is an option for this drink made with black spiced rum, bear in mind butterscotch sauce isn’t usually dairy-free. The butterscotch sauce can be Smucker’s or Mrs Richardson’s – there are of course other brands to consider too.

As for the black spiced rum, Kraken is perhaps the best known. Black spiced rum has a richer taste than regular rum. You could sub plain dark rum for this rum nog cocktail but it’s worth using black spiced rum. It just makes this Christmas nog cocktail richer!

Put the ice cream in your blender along with the bananas and butterscotch sauce. Once the rum nog cocktail mixture is well blended, add the rum and blend a little more. Serve the eggnog made with ice cream over ice and sprinkle cinnamon on top. I like to garnish these with a cinnamon stick too.

Can I Make this Banana Cocktail Ahead?

This delicious Christmas nog cocktail made with black spiced rum can be prepared ahead. Keep it refrigerated for up to 2 days and pop it in the blender again before serving since the ingredients will separate a bit. It will also be a little darker in colour since the bananas will go browner.

What Exactly is Bananas Foster?

This spiked bananas foster ice cream rum nog is based on bananas foster, the iconic banana dessert. This US dessert originated in New Orleans. It’s a rich-tasting banana and vanilla ice cream dish with a brown sugar, butter, dark rum, banana liqueur, and cinnamon sauce. Sometimes chopped walnuts or pecans are added and whipped cream often makes an appearance.

Bananas foster makes an indulgent crepe filling. It’s a fun dessert to order at a restaurant if they flambé it tableside! The dish dates back to 1951 and to Owen Brennan’s Vieux Carré Restaurant. South American bananas were imported into this area, making it the perfect dessert in the area.
