kangaroo notebook

1 1/2 oz Lustau Brandy
1/2 oz Green Tea Syrup
1/2 oz Punt e Mes
1/2 oz Lemon Juice

Shake with ice, strain into a Collins glass with 3 oz soda water, top with ice, add a straw, and garnish with a lemon twist.
Two Thursdays ago for drink of the day at Loyal Nine, I was tinkering with the green tea-Punt e Mes combination that I have found success with in drinks like Dakkar Grotto and decided to take it in a more classic punch-like feel using brandy and lightening things with soda water. For a name, I was lured in by the absurdist work of Japanese author Kobo Abe called the Kangaroo Notebook. Perhaps a daikon radish garnish would have been more appropriate to match the book, but I opted with a lemon twist instead.
