What is a banana liqueur?
Banana liqueur is a sweet spirit that is infused with banana flavour. It is typically yellow in colour and is used as an ingredient in cocktails or other mixed drinks.
Depending upon the type of banana liqueur, it is made by infusing a neutral spirit, such as vodka or white rum, with sliced fresh bananas, banana pieces, or sometimes banana extract. The ingredients are steeped together in a closed container, often at room temperature, for several days or weeks to extract the flavour and aroma of the bananas. Other ingredients, such as sugar, may be added as well, depending on the recipe. The mixture is then strained and bottled.
Bols Banana Liqueur uses banana extract to provide its flavour. This gives it increased longevity.
