Welcome to Common Man Cocktails I’m your host Derrick Schommer and today were going to do the Caribbean Sunset or Caribbean Sunset depending on your accent or where your from I don’t know. Which once right, which one is wrong send me and email at me now.
What were going to have today is a little gin were going to use some G-vine gin the floor is on, creamed the banana. Now the trick here is we’ve had a couple of people say “We like to cream the banana episode” but we can’t do all of them because there’s a lot of alcohols when you want to make every drink we’ve done. So I’m going to try and this recipe is kind of fall to some of the alcohols we’ve used so you might if you bought this for other recipes like our shooters. Then you might already have this because I know this was using the same shooter that this was used in.
Were going to use a little brandy, oh, my gosh, it’s like sticky and an ounce of lemon juice. Were going back to the cream, we got a little more cream. This time it’s just a half ounce of cream were going to put it all in a high bowl glass from the awesomedrinks.com and if there is anything else I think that’s were going to–typically this would call for orange slice and a maraschino cherry. I’ve got these two huge cherries I mean these are actually probably their maraschino cherries but they’re made of ice cream. So if you’re wondering where to get them look in the ice cream section you might find them over there too.
So lets get started what we’ll do is just pour in our lemon juice there we go we just sour it up a little bit we got a lot of sweetness here. So what were going to do is an ounce of all of the alcohols, so let’s start with the acid gin nice and clear so it’s not going to add any effects. The Caribbean Sunset’s is going to have an effect which is why were going to do the grenadine last, we’ll do an ounces of blue curacao and this is super blue.
And this is going to end up sort of looking like that frostbite but without the tequila. And we’ll do and ounce of the crème of banana. Banana is kind of tropical it fits well in the drink. And the yellowish is going to give it a little green hue to it, which is kind of neat. An then were going to finish with just half a ounce of cream but a half ounce of cream is enough to drastically impact what the string is going to look like. It’s going to lighten up. Look at that isn’t that art work right there, pretty.
I already got this, already iced up now I can give it a little crazy because you got to be tricky and let’s get the ice in here without making a mess. That’s a lot of ice, I figured it would melt by now but it has not. So there you go that’s going to be build that were going to shake up. So let’s shake it up. And loose them, just a little bit. It could be worst.
Now were going to pour that right into our highball glass. There you go so that’s your base drink there is your sky now to get the Sunset effect is very similar to a tequila sunrise where you’ve got the red coming out of the bottom. Were going to knew that same effect here.
Just dump a little grenadine there’s no need to over do it otherwise things will look a little too red and a little too sweet. So what you have is that slow rise, grenadine seems to be extremely heavy and usually always sinks to the bottom unless you have puss cafe style drink still it’s going to be at the bottom. So there you can kind of get the effects of the sunset there. Overall I don’t really consider that impressive of a presentation because it doesn’t really blend extremely well but it’s good enough it’s really about the taste when it comes down to it.
So let’s taste it. Like a grenadine which actually kind of complements the sweetness with the banana’s there’s a little floral gin in there and not too bad you’ve got the – it’s really sweet drink but not over, over the top sweet I think that the cream helps kind of sub-do it and bring it something that’s not so crazy. So you're not going to feel like all sticking goopy inside.
Overall, though it’s not too bad, the cream does thicken it a little bit but not as much as I would think from the prospect was a little more than that. so there you go that’s the Caribbean Sunset.
