Fat Cat

The Fat Cat cocktail is just kind of amazing. The flavors of banana, almond and Irish cream do fantastic things together. If you’ve ever had really good banana pudding on a graham cracker crust, you begin to get the idea. It’s just fantastic.

I don’t know if it’s called the Fat Cat because it’ll put weight on you – it probably will! – or because it’s so deliciously rich.  Enjoy this one as a sweet, sweet shooter or a dessert substitute.

  • 1 ounce Baileys
  • 1/2 ounce amaretto
  • 1/2 ounce banana liqueur

Shake all the ingredients together in a shaker half-filled with ice. Strain into a shot glass or pour into a highball glass, depending on whether you want it on the rocks or not.
