sister midnight

1 1/2 oz Appleton Signature Rum
1/2 oz Smith & Cross Rum
1/2 oz Yellow Chartreuse
1/2 oz St. George Spiced Pear (Rothman & Winter Orchard Pear)

Stir with ice and strain into a Nick & Nora glass.
Two Wednesdays ago, I returned to Death & Co.'s third book, Welcome Home, and came across Jon Armstrong's 2016 creation Sister Midnight. The drink is perhaps a reference to the song written by David Bowie to be performed by Iggy Pop, and the combination of Yellow Chartreuse and St. George Spiced Pear reminded me of the Hey Heywood!. In the glass, the Sister Midnight proffered a pear and rum funk aroma. Next, caramel and orchard fruit on the sip turned over into funky rum, herbal, and pear flavors on the swallow.
