Lorikeet

Lorikeet

We have yet to come across a single recipe in Shannon Mustipher’s excellent book Tiki that we didn’t fall in love with, and the Lorikeet is no exception. It’s banana-forward, so you’ll need a good banana liqueur like Giffard’s Banane du Bresil, or Tempus Fugit’s Crème De Banane.

Mustipher’s recipe calls for a total of 10 dashes of bitters: 6 of Peychaud’s, 4 of Angostura. If you don’t have one of these, you can use a single variety for all 10 dashes, or you can swap in something else appropriate, like tiki or citrus bitters.
