Old Fashioned Banana cocktail
- ½oz crème de banane
- 1-2 dashes Angostura bitters
- ¼oz overproof Jamaican rum (Smith & Cross)
- 1oz barrel proof bourbon (Old Forester Single Barrel)
Stir and serve over a large rock, garnished with a cherry. Allow plenty of dilution due to the high proof spirits.
Really nice blend of the flavours, clear bourbon richness and banana candy without either one dominating. This much Smith & Cross in almost any other drink would overwhelm but here it takes a back seat and bridges the flavours.
