the jerk

1 oz Old Monk Rum
1/2 oz Coconut Milk
1/2 oz Orgeat
1/2 oz Root Liqueur
1/2 oz Pernod Pastis

Shake with ice and strain into a Highball glass with 2 oz soda water. Garnish with an orange twist and add a straw.
For a first drink at Backbar, Andrea asked bartender Kobie Ali for The Jerk described as, "childish and delicious; tastes like a root beer float from a dapper soda jerk." Kobi mentioned that the menu item had been created by bartender Melinda Johnson-Maddox. Once prepared, it offered an orange oil and anise aroma. A carbonated, creamy coconut-laden sip preceded the root beer flavors tempered by the pastis' anise on the swallow.
