After a day of exploring the East Harlem neighbourhood of New York, the same neighbourhood where the Velvet Underground’s Lou Reed was famously waiting for his man, where Ben E King and Aretha Franklin crooned about Spanish Harlem and where Patsy’s Pizzeria has been slinging slices to locals and celebrities such as Frank Sinatra and Francis Ford Coppola since 1933, you may feel the need for a nightcap.
116th Street’s Lion Lion bar would be just the type of place we would recommend. The bar’s Zachary Gelnaw-Rubin created the simple recipe for the somehow complex tasting Banana Cognac you hold in your hand and we are forever grateful…
- 50ml Seignette cognac
- 15ml banana liqueur
- 3 dashes of chocolate bitters
Fill a rocks glass with ice
Add all ingredients and stir
Garnish with a slice of banana
