This cocktail's name comes across like a Freudian slip or a spoonerism--and that might be its origin. I can just see someone asking a bandana-clad bartender to make them one of those bandana cocktails. The flavor, though, is banana, and it comes from MurLarkey banana whiskey. Normally we associate banana drinks with rum, but when you try this, you'll see how good banana and whiskey can be.

Typically fake banana flavors can be added to a cocktail with banana flavored rums or cheap creme de banane. MurLarkey Banana whiskey is made from their corn whiskey infused with dried bananas. It is dry, not like banana candy. You can sweeten it for a cocktail or drink it neat and it tastes like an aged rum agricole.
  • 1 1/2 oz. blended whiskey (Proper Twelve used)
  • 3/4 oz. banana liqueur (MurLarkey banana whiskey used)
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. orange juice
 Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
