baron of brooklyn

1 1/2 oz Cachaça (Seleta Gold)
1 1/2 oz Tawny Port (Sandeman)
1/2 oz Crème de Banana (Giffard)
1/2 oz Suze Gentian Liqueur
1 dash Angostura Bitters
1 dash Mole Bitters (Bittermens)

Stir with ice, strain into a snifter (double old fashioned glass) with a large ice cube, and garnish with a lemon horse's neck twist.
One of the recipes in Doni Belau's Paris Cocktails that caught my eye was not from Paris or even Europe, but it was from America from the French-inspired Maison Premiere in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Despite the disparate ingredients of cachaça, port, gentian liqueur, and banana liqueur in the Baron of Brooklyn, the end result was rather elegant. In the glass, the drink let go a lemon, dark grape, and banana bouquet to the nose. Next, a sweet grape sip transitioned into funky cachaça, fruity banana, and complex gentian flavors with a cinnamon and allspice finish.
