Chow Chicka Bow Wow

Chow Chicka Bow Wow cocktail with rum and banana liqueur

A signature drink at Austin’s Wu Chow restaurant, this recipe is a gorgeous way to show off a good banana liqueur. We’re obsessed with Giffard’s Banane du Brésil, so this drink couldn’t come at a better time for our test subjects!

Wu Chow calls for aged rum, but the Chow Chicka Bow Wow (we just like saying that name) has enough citrus to stand up to sweeter spiced or Demerara rums – we’ve tried with both, to good effect.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
