Bananas Foster Cocktail

This cocktail was inspired by the well-known dessert, Bananas Foster, and while I'm not a huge fan of bananas, this is amazing! It's creamy and sweet and a true dessert substitute.

Warning: My first attempt led to curdling, so be careful as to the order you pour the liquor/liqueur which I specify in the recipe.

    This sounds really good. I'm wondering though, based on the fact that the spiced rum can curdle the dairy does that also mean you shouldn't mix or stir it? I'm just curious about the flavors and whether or not they mix or if it's more of a layered drink.

    Thanks! Keep it layered and don't go crazy stirring it with the straw, and if it does curdle, the curds will just stick to the ice and will hardly be noticeable in my experience.

    An absolute WOW to the long picture in step one! Cool idea to show the process from start to finish in one long scroll-picture!
