  • Dessert! Used chocolate bitters and home-made crème de banane. I should make again with a better more banana-y liquer. — ☆☆☆☆

I tried this with Buffalo

I tried this with Buffalo Trace, homemade banana liqueur,and Cardamaro for the aromatized wine.  I didn't have mole bitters so I used root beer bitters.  And then I made a couple more.

Made this with OGD 100 and 10

Made this with OGD 100 and 10 drops of Bittermens Xocolatl Mole Bitters, 50 revolution stir count.  Liked the flavor profile (reminded me a bit of a stirred boozy version of Bananas Foster), but thought it was a bit sweet for me as written.  Added an additional 10 drops of mole bitters, and per a previous suggestion, spritzed the inside and top of the glass with allspice dram, which I thought was a slight improvement to the drink.  Either way, a very tasty flavor profile.
