Bastard’s Life

Reading Minimalist Tiki, the book of my friend Matt Pietrek, I found a recipe from Daniel “Doc” Parks that caught my eye, the cocktail was called Banana Life. As I continued to immerse myself in my reading, I realized that there were some twists of the same cocktail in the book, such as The Banana Life Redux by Matt Pietrek or Commando Life by Jason Alexander. Honestly, I thought it was an interesting cocktail and a fun idea, so I decided to make my own twist on it, that’s how Bastard’s Life was born.
