Tony Burke, an ambassador for Angel’s Envy whiskey, invented Without Faculty for his father, a dessert-hound with a particular sweet tooth for Bananas Foster.
Despite its small share in the recipe’s proportion, it’s the banana liqueur that has the greatest potential to make or break this drink. Avoid astringent, candy-flavored liqueurs like 99 Bananas and the like here; we’re partial to Giffard’s Banane du Bresil for its luscious banana-bread flavors.
Shake everything (except the bitters) with ice. Strain into an ice-filled short glass and top with the bitters and a banana slice.
