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.
