#DOTW: Banana Nut Bread Martini

I feel it’s time for a good old girly sweet Martini. I found this delicious Banana Nut Bread Martini! The original recipe calls for Banana Liquor, which is a clear liquid, but I chose a liquor called Bananas Over You, which has a creamy consistency. The result was simply divine! This is one of my all time favorite cocktails now.



What you’ll need:

  • 2 oz Tito’s Vodka (or quality vodka of your choice)
  • 1 oz Frangelico
  • 1 oz Banana Liquor (or Bananas Over You)
  • Graham crackers

Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker over ice. Dip rim of Martini glass in simple syrup, then in ground up graham crackers. Shake the cocktail well, then pour into the glass.

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
