Chow Chicka Bow Wow
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.
Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into an ice-filled short glass. Garnish with a wedge or wheel of lime or grapefruit, or a peel-on slice of fresh banana.
