The Banana Bread Old Fashioned

0.0 from 0 votes

I can’t remember a time that I didn’t love banana bread. Moist, walnutty, banana-y… what’s not to love? So when I discovered that a local eatery, Just Brunch, had the Banana Bread Old Fashioned on its menu, I begged my wife to make reservations for two specifically so that I could sample (and by sample, I mean have at least one, maybe two) of their Banana Bread Old Fashioneds with brunch. She drove, thank goodness.

When the server brought my drink to the table, I could smell the bananas and walnuts before she even sat it down. A good, long, whiff told me almost everything I wanted to know. This was going to be good. And I was not disappointed.

I know there are quite a few versions of the Banana Bread Old Fashioned out there, so this is pretty much a recreation of Just Brunch’s Banana Bread Old Fashioned. I didn’t have Tempus Fugit Creme de Banana, nor could I find it easily in time for this recreation. I used DeKuyper’s Creme de Banana instead. Also I tried it with both Fee Brothers Aztec Chocolate Bitters, and regular old Angostura Bitters. My wife prefers the Angostura, while I leaned more toward the chocolate bitters. Either way, this is a winner. Cheers!

Hi! I’m Bob!

If it’s got bourbon in it, I’m drinking it. And if it’s really good, I’m gonna figure out how to make it, and share it with you. Because I’m good like that.
