Rampart Street Parade

Just a guess...this is a New Oleans cocktail. It has Southern Comfort (A Louisiana Original!) and creme de bananes (banana liqueur) for sweetness alone--and it is pretty sweet. It's a strong rum drink that sounds like it would be a party in your mouth. I've been dissing it for a while, but I have to say that this is a fun cocktail to drink. It has the kind of addictiveness of Dippin' Dots banana split flavor in that you can't stop with one taste and it doesn't overtly taste like bananas. If you have the weird combination of ingredients at home, do the Rampart Street just so you can say you drank it. Like Mardi Gras and New Orleans in general, it is strange experience that you have to have yourself.
  • 2 oz. light rum
  • 1 oz. creme de bananes
  • 1/2 oz. Southern Comfort
  • 1 oz. lime juice
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
