Inspiration for this cocktail comes from a drink I had at the renowned NOLA restaurant Tableau. Years ago, I had the pleasure of indulging on their decadent Foster Cocktail while relaxing on their beautiful balcony overlooking Jackson Square.
The drink was so delicious, I wanted to recreate it when I got home. This is the original recipe for the Foster Cocktail at Tableau. Initially, I ran into problems finding the ingredients they used, so I crafted my own version!
This cocktail captures all the elements of the famous New Orleans treat: flambé bananas, brown sugar, cinnamon, rum sauce, & vanilla ice cream and translates them into an adult Bananas Foster Cocktail. Cheers!
