Jungle James

This is a simple cocktail that was designed for vodka drinkers who are leery at using fresh ingredients--dive bar drinkers, I think. That is because dive bars don't usually have fresh ingredients. They have vodka and a bunch of cremes like creme de bananes.

I've classed this drink up a bit with quality vodka and banana whiskey from MurLarkey distillery. This is made with an infusion of real dried bananas and it tastes like a rich aged rum. So kinda nice, really.

I also dig the name. It's like: "The name's James. Jungle James."
  • 2 oz. vodka 
  • 2 oz. banana liqueur (MurLarkey banana whiskey and 1/2 tsp. sugar used)
  • 2 oz. milk
Combine all ingredients in a blender with ice. Blend until smooth and pour into a chilled Old Fashioned glass.
