Rum • Sweet
Bananas Foster Shot

Inspired by the New Orleans classic, bananas foster, this golden, Mardi Gras-ready shooter combines gold rum with banana liqueur and RumChata for a touch of cinnamon and vanilla. Gold rum gives it that essential burnt sugar quality, but dark or even spiced rum would work too, if that’s what you have around. Rim the glass in caramel sauce for an extra treat to lick when all the booze is gone, then make yourself another.
