wai wai

1 oz Hamilton's 86 Proof Guyana Rum
1 oz Oloroso Sherry
3/4 oz Giffard Banane du Bresil
1/4 oz Orgeat
3/4 oz Lime Juice
1 dash Angostura Bitters

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail coupe.
For my second drink at Estragon, I opted for Sahil Mehta's drink of the day from a week and a half ago that had more of a tropical slant. Given the Guyanese rum driving this drink, it got dubbed the Wai Wai after one of the nine indigenous tribes of Guyana. Once prepared, it shared a banana and nutty aroma to the nose. Next, grape and lime mingled on the sip before rum, banana, and nutty flavors rounded out the swallow.
