After a chilly few days in New York City, and many, many Pride parties celebrating our collective gay victory, I feel it’s time for a stirred drink. To me, this cocktail represents a small respite from the collective hot-weather-shaken-citrusy-cocktails which will dominate every bar menu until September. Let us breathe deeply, take a moment, and let the thick luscious viscosity and complex flavours take us away.
Let us all become Seasoned Travelers.
This maginificent drink features several of my favourite things all at once: Fino Sherry, Bonal Aperitif, Flor de Caña 7 Year and Giffard Banane. Enjoy this one whenever you have a moment to spare.
- 1 1/2 oz Flor de Caña 7 Year
- 3/4 oz Bonal Aperitif
- 1/2 oz Giffard Banane du Bresil
- 1/2 oz Inocente Fino Sherry
- Garnish: Luxardo Maraschino Cherry
Combine ingredients over ice and give it a long, loving stir. Strain into coupe, garnish with Cherry.
Santé mes amis!
