boardwalk flyer

3/4 oz Aged Cachaça (Seleta Gold)
3/4 oz Blanco Vermouth (Dolin)
3/4 oz Giffard Banane du Bresil
3/4 oz Lime Juice

Build in a Collins or Pilsner glass, fill with crushed ice, and swizzle to mix and chill. Garnish with a few dashes of molé bitters, freshly grated nutmeg, and mint sprigs.
Two Wednesdays ago, I made another drink from the Punch article on Swizzles called the Boardwalk Flyer. The recipe was crafted by Damon Boelte of Grand Army in Brooklyn and featured cachaça paired with banana liqueur. Once built, the Boardwalk Flyer proffered a mint, nutmeg, and my house chocolate bitter's anise note aroma. Next, lime and white wine filled the sip, and the swallow was almost pear-like from the grassy rum and the crème de banana.
