Banana Bliss


  • 30 ml Cognac
  • 22-25 ml oloroso sherry
  • 7-8 ml banana liqueur
  • Garnish: orange twist

 Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass over ice and stir until chilled. Strain into a rocks glass over a large ice cube. Garnish with an orange twist.


The Banana Bliss is a new twist on a forgotten recipe from Caitlin Laman at Chicago’s Ace Hotel. Where the original was a slightly acrid mix of cognac and banana liqueur, Laman’s choice to bring sherry to the party proved to be the missing piece the 1930s recipe needed to appeal to a modern palate.
