1 1/2 oz Iwai Japanese Whiskey
1/2 oz Meletti Amaro
1/4 oz Giffard Banane du Bresil
1/4 oz Crème de Cacao
2 dash Teapot Bitters

Stir with ice, strain into a rocks glass, fill with ice, and add a straw.
Two Mondays ago, Andrea and I headed over to Brick & Mortar where Hugh Fiore and Taylor MacKinnon were at the stick. For a first drink, I requested the Kon'Nichiwa!!! which reminded me of Tiger Mama's Japanese whiskey-based Flushing-Main Street. In the glass, the Kon'Nichiwa!!! gave forth a tropical whiskey aroma. Next, the sip shared malty and caramel notes, and the swallow began with whiskey, banana, and herbal flavors and ended with a chocolate finish. Overall, it was a touch on the sweeter side of balanced for me, but it was a rather delightful flavor combination.
