Bananarac Rye Whiskey Cocktails

If you’re looking for a delicious and unique whiskey cocktail, look no further than the bananarac. This drink is made with rye whiskey, banana liqueur, and orange juice. It’s a smooth and refreshing drink that’s perfect for summer sipping! Let’s take a look at how to make this tasty cocktail.

What is Bananarac?

The bananarac is a sweet and tart cocktail made with rye whiskey, banana liqueur, fresh orange juice, and a bit of lime juice. The combination of these ingredients creates an incredibly flavorful drink that has hints of sweetness from the banana liqueur, earthy notes from the rye whiskey, and tartness from the citrus juices. It’s a great way to enjoy your favorite rye whiskey in an exciting new way!

How Do I Make It?

Making this cocktail is easy! All you need are four ingredients:

2 ounces of rye whiskey,

  • 2 ounces of rye whiskey,
  • 1 ounce of banana liqueur (such as Crème de Banana),
  • 3 ounces of freshly squeezed orange juice, and
  • ½ ounce of freshly squeezed lime juice

Simply combine all ingredients in a shaker filled with ice cubes. Shake until the outside of the shaker is cold to the touch (about 30 seconds). Strain into an ice-filled glass, garnish with an orange wheel or wedge if desired, and enjoy! 

Tips for Making the Perfect Bananarac

This recipe can be easily adjusted depending on your personal taste preferences. If you want your drink to be sweeter, add another ounce of banana liqueur; if you want it to be more tart or boozy, add another ounce of rye whiskey or lime juice. Feel free to experiment with different combinations until you find one that suits you best!   Additionally, if you don't have any fresh oranges or limes on hand, you can substitute store-bought orange or lime juice instead—just make sure they are 100% fruit juices without any added sugar or preservatives.

With its smooth flavor profile and refreshing citrus notes, it's sure to become one of your go-to drinks for summertime sipping. So go ahead – give it a try – we guarantee it won’t disappoint!
