This is a great anytime cocktail, featuring 3 simple ingredients: orange juice, banana liqueur, and a high-quality rum.
The flavors make this drink perfect for brunch, but they also are a little taste of tiki, without going full tiki. Let's call it semi-tiki.
Because there are just a few ingredients here, we recommend keeping them top quality. We're fans of the banana liqueurs from both Giffard (Banane du Brésil) and Tempus Fugit (Crème de Banane).
We also think a high-quality rum is essential, since the flavor really shines here. And high-quality doesn't have to mean out of reach! All of our recommended rums fall between $21-$35. Probitas is an excellent choice, as is The Real McCoy 3 Year. Plantation 3 star is also a winner. And, if it's possible, fresh-squeezing orange juice will really take this one over the top. But don't worry --if all you've got on hand is a can of frozen, that will do just fine.
