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.
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.
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.
- 1-1/2 ounces aged agricole rhum (I used Clement Rhum Vieux Agricole)
- ¾ ounce Giffard Banane du Bresil Liqueur
- ½ ounce Benedictine
- Star anise pod for garnish
- Add all ingredients except for garnish to a mixing glass and fill with ice.
- Stir and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
