Without Faculty | Cocktail Party

Without Faculty

Without Faculty cocktail with bourbon, ginger syrup, banana liqueur, lemon juice and tiki bitters

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.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake everything (except the bitters) with ice. Strain into an ice-filled short glass and top with the bitters and a banana slice.

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.

Game Changer

This is a game changer. When you're at the liquor store, thinking, "Yeah, ok fine what does Ancho Reyes liquor get me?" you open the app, look up Chile liquor and see that it gets you like 11 new cocktails. This is addictive, and indeed worth the price. We're having a blast under quarantine. While some of the ingredients are kind of anonymous, the icons look like the Campari bottle, and the descriptions often tell you if Campari will work or if you need Aperol. If you <3 cocktails, get this.
