Banana Boulevardier Slushie
Created by Lucinda Sterling of Middle Branch




1 oz. Russell’s Reserve 10 Years Old Bourbon
1 oz. fresh pineapple juice
1 oz. Campari
1 oz. Braulio Amaro
.5 oz. banana liqueur
.5 oz. fresh orange juice

Mix all ingredients together.
Pour over crushed ice into a Collins glass or your favorite Tiki mug.
Serve with banana slices and orange wedges.

Thanks to Russell’s Reserve for these great recipes. The fruity drink like the slushie might sound a bit out of the ordinary but the cold icy texture of a slushie and the tropical aspect of the banana makes this ideal for hot days and sultry nights! The coffee-based cocktail sounds fabulous– and would work day or night and would be a great brunch cocktail. The Julep skips mint and goes for a rhubarb spiked cocktail that’s sure to be a great addition to any event you host!
Make sure you get a bottle (or 2) of this brand. You will be pleasantly surprised with the great whiskeys in this brand!
