Bottom Shelf Mixology: Whiskey Split

Welcome to Bottom Shelf Mixology!  Our staff of Mixologists have racked their brains (and livers) to come up with special "bottom shelf" versions of popular drinks, and some original creations that range from "oh, that might be interesting" to "that sounds absolutely disgusting".  

Today is National Banana Split Day, and it is also National Whiskey Sour Day.  We decided that we were going to somehow combine the two into a Bottom Shelf Mixology recipe, and I think we have come up with one of our greatest drinks ever!

Whiskey Split
  • 1.5 oz R&R Whiskey
  • .5 oz Amaretto
  • 1.5 oz 99 Bananas Schnapps
  • 1 tsp Store Brand Chocolate Flavored Syrup
  • 1 tsp Store Brand Strawberry Flavored Syrup
  • Whipped Dessert Topping (in spray can)
  • 1 Wild Cherry Luden's Throat Drop
  • Ice
In a shaker, combine the whiskey, amaretto, and banana schnapps.  Mix well, and poor into a small glass.

Add in the chocolate and strawberry flavored syrup, and stir gently.

Top the drink with a healthy amount of whipped dessert topping, and place the cherry (throat drop) on top.  You might want to drizzle a bit more syrup on top as well.

If you are sick of people always wanting to have some of your banana split, this drink is sure to put an end to that.
