While writing up that Renaissance Hotel opening celebration story I remembered a trip to Aruba I took a few years ago. And while reminiscing on this lovely trip the first thing that came to mind was this amaaaaazing frozen drink I had while there. It was at a cute little outdoor bar and grill at the Renaissance Aruba’s private island. Now it took a great deal of Googling to find the name of this particular restaurant and the name of the drink but I’m about 85 percent sure that I was able to find the correct name of the The Best Drink I Ever Had.
It’s called the “Banana Jammer” and my mouth is watering just thinking about it. I’m pretty much sold on any frozen drink that has “banana” in the name but to be quite frank a lot of them suck. They all seem to taste like cheap liquor, ice, and banana flavored Now N’ Laters. But the “Banana Jammer” was perfect! Imagine an absolutely amazing banana milkshake with liquor in it. It’s like that but 10 times better. So needless to say if you’re ever in Aruba you have to check out Papagayo Bar & Grill and order yourself a “Banana Jammer.”
