freak c'est chic

1 1/2 oz Amaro di Angostura
3/4 oz Angostura 7 Year Rum
3/4 oz Passion Fruit Puree (*)
1/2 oz Giffard Banane du Bresil
1/2 oz Lime Juice (*)

Shake with ice, strain into a Collins glass, fill with crushed ice, and add a straw.
(*) Perhaps 1/2 oz passion fruit syrup and 3/4 oz lime juice would work well here too.
Two Sundays ago, Andrea and I had dinner in Central Square, and we retired across the street to Brick & Mortar for a nightcap. For a drink, I asked bartender Jessie Solomon for the Freak C'est Chic that she had created for the new menu. Once she finished building her disco tribute, the aroma offered caramel, clove, and lime notes to the nose. Next, the caramel and lime continued on into the sip along with the passion fruit, and the passion fruit lingered into the swallow where in mingled with the banana and a winter-spiced finish.
