Starting early? Skip out on the Irish coffee and try this banana-infused Jameson cocktail from instead.
2 ounces banana-infused Jameson Irish Whiskey
1- 2 ounces fresh squeezed orange juice
Optional: black sugar sprinkles
In a shaker combine banana-infused whiskey and orange juice, shake until cold, then pour into an old-fashioned glass over a large ice cube. Garnish with a pinch of black sugar sprinkles.
How to make banana-infused Jameson: Slice 2 ripe bananas and put into a clean glass jar with an airtight lid. Pour 1/2 of a 750 ml bottle of Jameson into the jar and close tightly. Let sit on the counter in a dark spot and turn the jar gently once a day. After 4 to 5 days, strain the banana slices out using a fine mesh strainer and pour the whiskey through a coffee filter back into the jar. Refrigerate for up to 1 month.
Although this cocktail may require some prep time, but its combination of Guinness and Jameson make it an ideal choice.
