Frozen cocktails aren’t traditionally thought of as winter drinks, but there’s something cozy about sipping on a wintery cocktail in front of a fireplace. Especially when it’s this Bananas Foster frozen cocktail.

This may be one of the most delicious holiday drinks ever and the easiest to make. It’s made with vanilla ice cream, rum, caramel, cinnamon, and bananas of course, which are all extremely festive and heart-warming ingredients. The cocktail isn’t overly sweet either, which is nice.

This can be served instead of eggnog for a holiday party or gathering. I love eggnog, but if you want something super simple make this frozen bananas foster! You won’t be disappointed!
