Parasol | Cocktail Party

Parasol

Parasol cocktail with light rum, lime juice, banana liqueur, and pineapple juice

Shannon Mustipher, author of Tiki: Modern Tropical Cocktails, has a masterful understanding of tropical flavors and combinations, and a knack for making them accessible for the rest of us.

The Parasol is a perfect case-in-point: it’s a recipe so simple that we were shocked it didn’t already exist, and yet it tastes so fresh and new. Familiar, yet unexpected – a Mustipher hallmark.

We confess that we have tried this drink with bottom-shelf banana liqueur, and it was surprisingly agreeable. For the best incarnation, though, you’ll want a high-end liqueur like Giffard’s Banane du Bresil.
