The Yellow Sea is not a very well-known cocktail. It’s perfect for summer-time with its hints of banana and lime, it’s a bit on the strong side, and it’s very drinkable. Galliano is a complex liqueur, with notes of anise, lavendar and mint, but those flavors are hidden well behind vanilla.
Experienced palates may pick them out and appreciate them, but less experienced ones will just pick up on the vanilla, which is fantastic alongside the banana and lime. (If you just can’t stand Galliano, you could leave it out and use two ounces of vanilla vodka.)
This is a good cocktail to mix in a pitcher for parties.
- 1 ounce vodka
- 1 ounce Galliano
- 1/4 ounce creme de banana
- 1/2 ounce Rose’s lime cordial
Shake and strain all your ingredients into a martini glass.
