Banana Hammock Swizzle Drink & Ingredients

The Banana Hammock Swizzle Drink Recipe

This was a cocktail I created a couple years ago. The blend of ingredients create an herbal, spicy, rich flavor, yet remains refreshing. I've never been a fan of bananas or banana drinks, but this banana liqueur is outstanding and adds just enough subtle banana richness without going overboard like typical sickly sweet banana drinks. This is a banana drink for drink snobs, those who sip spirits neat, and enjoy subtleties, and nuances. I hope you enjoy it!
