Briottet Creme de Banane, Dijon, France (750ml)
From a firm established in 1836 by Edmond Briottet, this wonderful liqueur is made with bananas from Costa Rica which are hand-peeled to expose their pulp. They are then macerated in neutral alcohol derived from sugar beets to release the ripe banana flavor. A great ingredient in a variety of cocktail recipes, as suggested by Briottet here: Try the “After Sex” cocktail: 3 cl of vodka, 2 cl of Briottet Banana liqueur, orange juice, 0.5 cl of Briottet Poppy Liqueur and a pinch of sugar. Put the ingredients into a glass filled with ice cubes and top it up with orange juice. 25% ABV.
