Banana Buckmeister

Adapted from a recipe by Gorge Camorra, Cloud9 bar, Geelong, Victoria, Australia

Banana Buckmeister Gorge Camorra

“This was my entry for Jagermeister ‘master of the hunt’ competition, which I was fortunate enough to win.  Yes I know, banana liqueur!   It actually was a hit.” Gorge Camorra.

45 ml (1.5 oz) JägermeisterBanana Buckmeister

15 ml (.5 oz) Joseph Catron banana liqueur

60 ml (2 oz) freshly pressed orange juice

3 dashes Regans’ orange bitters No. 6

1 orange twist, as garnish

Shake over ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.  Add the garnish

gaz sez:  I met Gorge at the 2013 G’Vine Gin Connoisseurs bartender competition, and he impressed all hell out of me.  He’s not only a fabulous bartender and a creative genius, he’s an all-around good guy who takes lots of time to help others in his community.  This drink is just spectacular, and the idea of marrying Jägermeister and banana liqueur is just inspired.  I confess to not using the specific brand of liqueur that Gorge specifies when I tested this one, but I dare say that the drink will work well with near-as-darn-it any brand.  Nicely done, Gorge.  I’m proud to call you my friend on so many levels.
