In another pot put all the ingredients of the syrup and boil for 5 minutes. Let it cool and add 2 shots of vermouth. Mix together 15g of gelatine with 50ml of water and melt for 20 seconds in a microwave. Whip 500ml cream to a ribbon stage, add ¾ of the banana puree and the gelatine mixture and mix together.

Put another sponge on top and then repeat the process.  Smooth the edges of the mould with the cream.  Freeze for 1 hour and then add the remaining banana puree on top. Then un-mould the mousse and garnish to your desire .
