Pisang Pistachio Brings Indonesian Flavor to Memorial Day Cocktails

I can't remember the last time Indonesian flavors were featured on 'Serge the Concierge' if ever.

This second recipe excerpted from Cocktails (H.F Ullman, Spring 2013) by Eliq Maranik makes up a bit for this neglect-omission.

Pisang Pistachio

1 ½ oz (45 ml) Pisang Ambon

½ oz (15 ml) amaretto

1 ox (30 ml) double cream 

Pisang Pistachio
Pour the ingredients into a shaker filled with ice. Shake well and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. 

TIP! You can replace the cream with milk. 

Pisang Ambon is a bright green, ancient Indonesian liqueur manufactured by the Dutch company Bols. Bols is the largest distillery in the world. It was established by Lucas Bols as early as in 1575. Some of the liqueurs from that time are manufactured to this day, such as blue curaçao and Parfait Amour.
