BARTENDER: Ken Burton
DRINK NAME: Devil’s Banana
RECIPE: Served as shot. Pour from chilled bottles
- 2/3 Peel Bananacello on bottom
- 1/3 Cabo Diablo on top
“It’s a nice winter drink. It’s a cold drink but warm going down,” said Burton. “Cabo Diablo is a natural fit for (the Connecticut-based) Peel Bananacello. the bananacello also has a caramel kick and is a little thicker than the Cabo Diablo Coffee Liqueur, so it gives a lingering banana flavor on your tongue.”
