We looked inside the bar yesterday — you can read that story here — but today we’re looking at one of their cocktail recipes which is moving in numbers across the bar.
The Fiji Banana comes from bar manager Chad Choulai and draws on his decidedly tropical cocktail experience, having come to Bancho from rum bar The Lobo Plantation.
“The Fiji Banana is all about the tropics,” says co-owner Yoshi Onishi, “it’s light and something fun to drink in summer. Even though we’re still a whisky bar, we can have a little fun with the cocktails so we can diverge the offering to all of our customers.”
Of course, when you’re having fun with tropical flavours, it never hurts to add some pyrotechnics to the mix; when this cocktail is set alight, heads turn, and more people order it.
Take a look at the recipe below.
