Puerto Plata

What a delicious cocktail! The Puerto Plata is a surprisingly refreshing, and an inspired recipe that takes you out of the norm of tropical drinks and transports your taste buds to the Puerto Rico's tourist district. The interplay of orgeat and banana is brilliant for a vodka drink. This iteration, however, does not feature fake flavors: only real stuff like Liber & Co. orgeat and MurLarkey banana whiskey will do.

And I'm pleased that this is one time where MurLarkey Banana whiskey can be used without modifying the recipe at all. Orgeat that is rich and nutty will sweeten the whiskey and give the banana flavor something to stick to. The vodka is there only to boost the alcohol without overwhelming with flavor.
  • 1 1/2 oz. vodka (Smirnoff #57 used)
  • 1/2 oz. banana liqueur (MurLarkey banana whiskey used)
  • 1/2 oz. orgeat (Liber & Co. used)
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled Old Fashioned glass.
