Yellow Fingers

This is a fun, funny dessert drink cocktail with a tropical accent. Banana liqueur and blackberry brandy are the sweetener for this creamy cocktail. But banana liqueur tastes so fake and sugary. I was glad to use the richly flavored MurLarkey Banana Whiskey. Coupled with their gin, you get a dessert drink with traction. Whiskey flavors as well as real dried banana and a mouthful of gin botanicals bombard your senses.

For the blackberry brandy, I used my homemade blackberry brandy by dissolving blackberry preserves in cognac and fine straining out the liquor.
  • 2 oz. gin (MurLarkey ImaGination used)
  • 1 oz. half-and-half
  • 1 oz. blackberry brandy (homemade used)
  • 1 oz. creme de bananes (MurLarkey banana whiskey used)
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
