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.

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.

This app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
