holy mole!

1 1/2 oz Glenfiddich Scotch
3/4 oz Giffard Banane du Bresil
1/2 oz Ginger Syrup
1/2 oz Lemon Juice
1 dash Bittermens Mole Bitters

Shake with ice and strain into a coupe glass.
Later that Monday night, I found myself at the Hawthorne for the final event to wrap up Boston Thirst 2016, the William & Grant party. For a libation, I asked bar manager Jared Sadoian for the Holy Molé! which reminded me on paper of a banana for honey Penicillin Cocktail. Once built, the Holy Molé! presented a banana aroma accented by smoky Scotch notes. Next, the lemon sip gave way to Scotch, ginger, and banana on the swallow.
