run through the jungle

1 1/2 oz Appleton Estate Signature Rum
3/4 oz Averna
1/4 oz Aperol
1 1/2 oz Pineapple Juice
1/2 oz Lime Juice
1/2 oz Simple Syrup

Shake with ice and strain into a double old fashioned with a large ice cube (single old fashioned with two ice cubes).
Two weeks ago, I returned to the article on Jungle Bird riffs in the current issue of Imbibe Magazine after having made the Second Surfin' Bird. There, I opted for the Run Through the Jungle created by Jeff Baumann at the Great Northern in Burlington, Vermont; with its Averna component, the recipe reminded me of the Paul of the Jungle on the inaugural menu at Latitude 29. Here, the Run through the Jungle crafted a nose of rum, lime, and darker notes from perhaps the Averna. Next, lime and caramel on the sip slid into rum, pineapple, and orange-herbal flavors on the swallow.
