Ingredients

  • Sauce:
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons banana liqueur
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup bourbon (recommended: Maker's Kentucky Bourbon)
Grilled Bananas:
  • 1 ripe banana, sliced into 4 strips
  • 1/2 cup whiskey (recommended: Jim Beam Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey)
  • Couple of shakes from a cinnamon container
  • 2 store-bought brownies

Directions

Sauce:

Preheat grill to high.

Place all ingredients, except bourbon, in a small saucepan over high heat on the grill. Bring to boil and reduce by 1/3 until thickened. Remove from heat, add bourbon, and reduce by half. Remove from grill, cool slightly, and pour into a plastic container. As the sauce cools, it will thicken more.

Bananas:

Brush bananas with whiskey. Place bananas over medium-low heat on the grill. Generously sprinkle cinnamon over banana. Grill for 2 minutes and remove from the grill to a plate. Pour 1/2 cup of whiskey over bananas. Return bananas to the grill until a little charred. Flip bananas over to char the other side.

To assemble: Crumble brownies into 2 martini glasses, lay sliced bananas in an ornate fashion around rim of glass, and top with sauce.
