The Banshee is an Irish mythological creature of ill omen, but the cocktail named after it is very sublime. Banshee stories are a bunch of malarkey, as the Irish say. While the ingredients, creme de bananes in particular, have nothing to do with monsters that I can tell, your choice of spirit can be somewhat Irish.

MurLarkey banana whiskey gives this creamy drink more traction. You taste real bananas, not fake liqueur, you get a real-looking yellow color, and there's a bit of whiskey spice to keep it interesting. Heed this banshee's call.
  • 2 oz. creme de bananes (MurLarkey banana whiskey used)
  • 1 oz. white creme de cacao
  • 1 oz. half-and-half
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
