voodoo dreams

8 oz Diplomatico Reserva Rum (2 oz)
8 oz Naked Grouse Scotch (2 oz Famous Grouse)
4 oz Tempus Fugit Banana Liqueur (1 oz Giffard)
4 oz Lemon Juice (1 oz)
4 oz Demerara Syrup (1 oz)
16 dash Mole Bitters (4 dash Bittermens)
4 dash Salt Solution (1 pinch Salt)

Whip shake, pour into a Tiki bowl, fill with crushed ice, and garnish with mint and dried banana leaves (omit).
Two Saturdays ago, I decided to make a punch recipe that I had spotted in a recent Forbes article on seasonal large format drink ideas that would be perfect for Tiki the Snow Away. The recipe was the Voodoo Dreams by Keel Sutherland of Death & Co. in Denver. Without the mint garnish, the Voodoo Dreams provided a caramel and banana bouquet to the nose. Next, the rum's caramel continued on into the sip where it was balanced by the lemon notes, and the swallow shared rum, Scotch, and banana flavors with a chocolate-tinged finish.
