the san francisco treat

1 1/2 oz White Rum (Privateer Tres Aromatique)
3/4 oz Crème de Banane (Tempus Fugit)
1/4 oz Fernet Branca
1/2 oz Lime Juice
1 bsp Simple Syrup (Omit)
3 dash Chocolate Bitters (Angostura Cocoa)

Shake with ice, strain into a Nick & Nora glass (coupe), and garnish with a lime wheel and cherry (omit).
Two Thursdays ago, I ventured into Trevor Felch's San Francisco Cocktails book and spotted the San Francisco Treat that was different from the one in Brad Parson's book save for the Fernet Branca element. This one crafted at the Fisher Loft at the Palihotel San Francisco had the Fernet-banana combination that I loved in the Banana Toronto but here in a Daiquiri form akin to my Tropical Depression. In the glass, the San Francisco Treat delivered caramel, cooked banana, and menthol aromas to the nose. Next, lime and caramel on the sip crossed into rum, banana, and menthol flavors on the swallow.
