The Banoffee pie, a divinely inspired British dessert whose name is a conflation of its two major ingredients – bananas and toffee – has been transformed into a blissfully boozy martini milkshake at Medina Hospitality’s new-ish nightclub, a sexy Prohibition-themed sibling to The White Rabbit next door. Unique martinis are The Parlour Room’s specialty, and this rich rum-based confection proves its mixologists excel at making them. Dusted with freshly grated nutmeg and adorned with a mini bag of banana chips, it’s essentially banoffee pie in a glass, a warming, drinkable dessert for a cozy winter evening.

If you’d rather stay home and make a romantic night of it, rest assured, you can whip this one up while the SO slips into something comfortable. Combine ¾ oz Coruba rum, ¾ oz. Kalani coconut rum liqueur, 1 oz. heavy cream, ¼ oz. praline liqueur and ½ oz. Tempus Fugit banana liqueur in a cocktail shaker. Add ice, shake, double-strain into a martini glass and dust with nutmeg for a chilly but chill-beating treat.
