Banana Cocktail-Smoking Monkey-Raising The Bar With Jamie Boudreau

The original cocktail recipe was inspired by hints of banana that Jamie finds in Jameson Irish Whiskey. Playing off those notes, Jamie infused banana into the whiskey creating a truly unique flavor profile. Interestingly enough, this cocktail is shaken due to the pectins released into the Jameson during the infusion process. Misting the glass with a smoky Islay whisky (like Ardbeg) before straining gives the cocktail a deliciously smoky essence.


Banana infused jameson whiskey 1 1/2 Ounce
Pedro ximenez sherry 1/2 Ounce
The bitter truth aromatic bitters 3 Dash
Smoky islay scotch 1 (for misting)
