zamboanga "zeinie" cocktail

1 jigger Cognac (1 1/2 oz Camus VS)
3 dash Pineapple Syrup (1/2 oz)
1 tsp Maraschino (Luxardo)
Juice 1/2 Lime (1/2 oz)
3 dash Angostura Bitters

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail. Garnish with an olive (omit) and a lime twist.
Two Sundays ago, I continued on with my list of recipes to make from Charles H. Baker Jr.'s The Gentleman's Companion. This one was the Zamboanga "Zeinie" Cocktail that was described as "another palate twister from the land where the monkeys have no tails" and reminded me of an East India House with lime juice instead of curaçao. Once built, the Zamboanga offered a lime and clove bouquet. The lime continued on into the sip along with pineapple notes and hints of cherry, and finally, the swallow began with Cognac and ended with nutty, allspice, and clove elements.

I will now of course have to look up the ingredients in a Zamboanga Hummer.
