nose dive

1 oz Angel's Envy Bourbon
1 oz Pineapple Juice
1/2 oz Cherry Heering
1/2 oz Gran Classico
3/4 oz Lemon Juice
1/2 oz Demerara Syrup

Shake with ice, strain into a Collins glass (bottom wrapped with a dried plantain leaf), fill with crushed ice, top with 2-3 dashes Angostura Bitters, and garnish with mint, an orchid, and a paper airplane (elevated on a cocktail pick).

For a second drink, bartender Raul Zelaya offered to make Andrea and me some of the drinks that are served upstairs at the Baldwin & Sons Trading Co. He did so after hearing that my work schedule completely overlaps the nights that the second bar is open. The one that I had, the Nose Dive, is Ran Duan's variation on his Offshore Account with the addition of demerara syrup and the swapping out the cherry garnish for a flower and airplane combination.
This Sling began with mint, floral, clove, and allspice aromas that preceded a fruity sip where the most nameable flavor was cherry. Next, the swallow presented whiskey, cherry, pineapple, and bubble gum bitter flavors.

That little paper airplane is definitely a cheeky garnish. Brought a smile to my face just seeing it in the photo.
