editor recipe notes

So we run over the Brand of Discarded. We tried their products without even knowing about the company. Usually, I don’t keep appointments with a spirit company. We have no more space on the bar shelf, and you can not invent the wheel. But discarded banana peel rum was something different. We like the idea that they used dried banana peels to infuse their rum. The rum is, by the way, very high quality. The rum was used to infuse casks with their flavor and finish some whisky. And the combination of banana, rum, and chocolate is again a no-brainer. It’s slightly sweet, so best enjoyed as a dessert.
