46

The 46, from Hilltop Kitchen in Tacoma, Washington, is the cocktail equivalent of a breakfast of fresh coffee and banana bread. It’s one of our favorite ways to show off a high-quality banana liqueur, like those made by Giffard or Tempus Fugit.

The recipe, as printed in Imbibe magazine, calls for cold-brew coffee. You can get the stuff pre-bottled from your favorite coffee joint, or you can just do what we do and use whatever’s left over in your french press from your morning coffee.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled, small glass. Garnish with a banana slice (spray with lemon or lime juice to keep it from browning), or leave ungarnished.

This app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
