Our Judges Review

Shirley Brooks (Bartender at Madrone Art Bar)

Shirley describes this alcohol alternative, “ On the nose, I immediately get boozy butterscotch schnapps. Sweet and spicy bananas, honey and cinnamon. It's light and sweet. Spicy pepper lingers on the sides of the tongue. Thin mouthfeel.”

Nora Furst (Beverage professional with roots in SF and The PNW)

“Mix with coke or in a daiquiri to sip on the beach, " says Nora. She adds that the drink has “Graham cracker, dried orange peel, vanilla bean, honey and baking spice. Capsicum, caramelized banana.”
