Imagine lounging on a tropical beach, feeling the warm sand between your toes and the cool breeze on your skin. There's a drink in your hand. Picture it. I can 100% bet you aren't picturing boozy stirred drink.
Boozy drinks in summer are tough. Summer is about bright, refreshing, fresh! But in those lazy long evenings, as the sun goes down, you do want to reach for something a bit stronger, a bit richer. Enter the Banana Beret.
Three Barrels Brandy, using three distinct barrels to age, provides a smooth fruity and mellow base.
Giffard Banane du Brésil adds a tropical sweetness reminiscent of lazy days on the beach. It is hands down the best banana liqueur out there. No foam banana here.
Romate Oloroso Sherry offers a nutty depth of flavour that balances out the fruitiness, and Angostura Cocoa Bitters brings a subtle chocolatey note that brings everything together.
An indulgent after dinner sipper, perfect for the golden hour warmth and long summer nights.
STYLE: Old Fashioned
FLAVOUR: Intense, nutty, rich banana
ALLERGENS: None known
Chill ½ hour, shake pouch. Pour over lots of ice in a rocks glass, garnish with banana slices.
Pour the room temperature cocktail over some tiny cloudy ice you have in that ice tray that came with your freezer. But seriously, for optimum enjoyment use more ice than you think is necessary.
