the monkey's uncle

1 oz El Dorado 12 Year Rum
1 oz Santa Teresa 1796 Rum (Diplomatico Riserva Exclusiva)
1/2 oz Amaro Sibilla
1/2 oz Giffard Banane du Bresil (Tempus Fugit)
2 dash Bittermens Tiki Bitters (Bittercube Jamaica #2)

Stir with ice, strain into a double old fashioned glass with a large ice cube, and garnish with a lemon twist (orange twist).
Two Tuesdays ago, I selected Amanda Schuster's New York Cocktails from the book shelf. There, I happened upon the Monkey's Uncle that was created by Timothy Miner at the Long Island Bar when Amanda requested a stirred Tiki drink from him. Overall, the recipe reminded me of a rum for whiskey Banana Toronto of sorts. In the glass, the Monkey's Uncle presented an orange, caramel, and herbal bouquet to the nose. Next, caramel and tropical notes on the sip climbed to a rum, caramel, earthy bitter, and banana swallow.
