No Bartender? No Problem, Grab a LIQS Ready-to-Drink Shot

There’s nothing better than hanging out with friends, having a great time sharing laughs and celebrating having fun, whether you’re having game night at home, having a girls night out, hanging out at the beach, or at a party. Good times like these call for delicious cocktails, but no one wants to or should drag around full bottles of alcohol. When you want to celebrate and a bartender is not readily available, why not travel with your own bar with delicious portable cocktails from LIQS Cocktails? Say hello to the LIQS Ready-to-Drink Shot, a collection of low calorie, low sugar, kosher 50ml shots that are made in the USA with premium vodka and tequila.

Going Bananas | Peel Liqueur’s Bananacello Cream Liqueur

While attending the 2013 San Francisco World Spirits Competition Tasting Tour, I fell in love with a unique banana infused cream liqueur called Bananacello. A first of it’s kind, this creamy and decadent liqueur has a sweet, smooth taste. The brainchild of Peel Liqueur, this gluten-free delight is often used as a substitute for Bailey’s Irish Cream as well as other cream based liqueurs.

As stated, I discovered this gem during the 2013 San Francisco World Spirits Competition Tasting Tour where we got to sample winners of the competition. Bananacello competed along such entrants as Absolut, Bacardi and Bailey’s Irish Cream where it was awarded the Double-Gold Medal for taste and also won a bronze award for it’s unique bottle design.

I’ve been having a blast indulging in Bananacello, it’s almost sinful how delicious it is. It is amazing in Chai Tea and hot chocolate, adds a nice twist to eggnog, decadent when drizzled over ice creams and creamy frozen yogurts and I can’t even begin to explain the taste when poured over chocolate cake. Hopefully this will encourage you guys to try a bottle and if you do, the first recipe you should try is this one:

Banana Peel Martini

1 1/2 oz. Peel Banancello
1 1/2 oz. chocolate flavored vodka
Mix Peel Bananacello and vodka into a shaker with 3 oz. ice. Drizzle chocolate syrup into a chilled martini glass. Pour cocktail into glass and garnish with a maraschino cherry or banana slice.

Of course, not everyone is a fan of banana but don’t worry because Peel Liqueur also something for you lemon lovers – Limoncello, a specialty liqueur made from fresh lemon peel and Cremoncello, a lemon and cream infusion, a creamy version of the original Peel Limoncello. All three varieties can be seen below
