music that stay on for extra days

3/4 oz Suze Gentian Liqueur
3/4 oz Campari
3/4 oz Jagermeister
3/4 oz Cinnamon Falernum (3/8 oz each cinnamon syrup and Velvet Falernum)
1 oz Grapefruit Juice
3/4 oz Lime Juice
1 dash Absinthe (20 drops St. George)
1 dash Angostura Bitters

Whip shake with crushed ice, pour into a Tiki mug, and fill with crushed ice. Garnish with a mint bouquet, cinnamon stick, grapefruit twist, and an orchid (grapefruit twist and a cinnamon stick).
Two Mondays ago, I turned to a Tiki drink that I had spotted in Punch Drinks called the Music that Stays on For Extra Days. The recipe was created by Paul McGee of Lost Lake in Chicago as a lower proof Zombie riff using various amaro and herbal liqueurs in place of the rums. The ingredients minus the cordials reminded me of a Jet Pilot before reading that it was inspired by the Zombie though (perhaps it was the lack of grenadine). Once prepared, the Music that Stays on For Extra Days played into grapefruit and cinnamon aromas. Next, caramel, grapefruit, and lime mingled on the sip, and the swallow continued with earthy gentian, ginger, and bitter orange flavors with a cinnamon and anise finish.
