When I read about the Banarac on I knew I would try this drink. My sweetheart Eva gave me as an Easter present high quality ice ball moulds, so I can make now wonderful large ice balls which are ideal for such old-fashioned style drinks. And here is my slightly modified version of the Bananarac.


Absinthe, 1oz. Rye Whiskey, 1 oz. Cognac, 0.5 oz. Banana Liqueur, 0.5 oz. Simple Syrup, 2 dashes The Bitter Truth Aromatic Bitters, garnish: Lemon Peel


Swirl absinthe in a chilled rocks glass to coat the inside. Stir the remaining ingredients in a mixing glass filled with ice and strain into the rocks glass filled with a large ice ball. Twist a lemon peel over the drink and add to the glass.

    I gave this a try last night. It was good. I may try it again and sub more banana liqueur for simple syrup and throw a couple more dashes of absinthe into the drink. Bananas and absinthe: Tasty and very interesting combination!
