For a second drink at the Baldwin Bar at Sichuan Garden II, bartender Vannaluck Hongthong offered Andrea a preview of one of the drinks for the next menu revision. The Stack Banana, besides featuring Giffard's excellent banana liqueur, was a nod to the Harry Belafonte song "Day'O" with the lyrics, "Work all night on a drink of rum/Daylight come and me wan' go home/Stack banana till de morning come/Daylight come and me wan' go home." To round out the lyric's bananas and rum, the Stack Banana included lime, dark sugar syrup, and chocolate bitters.
