Recipe: Bananas Foster Cocktail

Recipe: Bananas Foster Cocktail

The Bananas Foster cocktail is the featured drink for episode 21 “Adult Horse Girl Energy”. This cocktail was created by Johnny Swet at JIMMY at the James, New York City.
We recommend using a stronger banana liqueur like 99 Bananas or Tempus Fugit Crème de BANANE. We used a cheap banana liqueur and the banana flavor was completely lost in the cocktail. Live and learn!

Ingredients:
2 oz. Aged Rum (we used Appleton Estate Reserve Blend because we are not made of money)
1 oz. Banana Liqueur
.5 oz. Lime Juice
1 tsp. Brown Sugar
2 thick banana chunks

Directions:
1. Muddle the banana chunks with the brown sugar.
2. Add the remaining ingredients and shake with ice until cold.
3. Strain into a rocks glass with ice.
4. Garnish with a thick banana slice that has been sprinkled with sugar and caramelized with a torch.

Enjoy!
