  1. Hi Chez – Bols apparently is one of the best brands. It is from Amsterdam so not sure if you can get it easily in the Southern Hemisphere. I cheated a bit and used Chambord, which is technically black raspberry liqueur. Don’t think it makes a huge flavor difference and almost everyone has a dusty bottle of that in their liquor cabinet. -Kat

  2. Hi Kat– and banana liqueur?? that’s new to me. This looks to fruity and inviting! I’m trying to think of fun supper in the back yard to serve it up to friends!! How did you enjoy it?? Hope your summer is going well. Do you have any travel plans? xoxo
