The Misty cocktail blends the flavors of apricot and orange with just a hint of banana. It’s sweet, mellow and fruity, and works best if you spend a little bit on the apricot brandy to avoid some of the really cloying sweet cheap stuff that’s out there.

Misty drink in cocktail glass

Even with a cheap apricot brandy, the Cointreau and creme de bananes bring this drink up a notch. Enjoy a Misty whenever you just want to kick back and chill out.


  • 1 ounce apricot brandy
  • 1 ounce Cointreau
  • 1 ounce vodka
  • Dash of creme de bananes

Fill a mixing glass with ice and add the ingredients. Stir them well, and strain the mixture into a martini glass.
