Banoffee

Banoffee cocktail with fresh banana, vanilla vodka, butterscotch liqueur, banana liqueur, maple syrup, milk, and half-and-half

There’s no shortage of creamy, overly-sweet dessert cocktails with a zillion ice-cream-shop ingredients, and for the most part we pass them by in our search to find only the finest and most balanced cocktails for you, dear user.

We very nearly passed up the Banoffee, too, with its ridiculous recipe that reads more like a grocery list than instructions for making a grown-up cocktail. But we had a banana burning a hole in our pockets, and everything else we needed on hand when we saw the recipe on Difford’s Guide, and so we tried it – and boy howdy, are we glad we did.

It’s quite good, with a strong focus on fresh banana flavor. The sweet liqueurs work well here, offering a hint of buttery pie crust and making the drink truly reminiscent of the English treat it’s named for. In the original recipe, the dairy component is split between milk and half-and-half (a sweet cream with a milkfat of about 12%) – you can use milk and/or cream in any proportion you prefer.

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
