Northern Territory {a rum banana cocktail}

Alright, things are getting a little funky this week with a rum banana cocktail. Stick with me here on this one. It’s good – I promise.

Northern Territory : a rum banana cocktail :

The idea behind this rum banana cocktail started with a bottle of Giffard Banane Du Bresil Liqueur. It’s made from Brazilian bananas, alcoolat de banane and a little cognac. It tastes like creamy banana with spices, vanilla and caramel. Like the ultimate banana dessert for adults. I bought my bottle of it at Total Wine so I’m guessing it shouldn’t be too hard to find. It’s also on K&L Wines if you’d like to order it.

Giffard Banane de Bresil banana liqueur

I wanted a drink that highlighted the banana liqueur but wasn’t overpowered by it. After a few trials, I ended up with an aged rhum agricole as the base spirit and a little Benedictine to round it all out. I find it to be a great nightcap after a long day.
