draft day

1 1/2 oz Rye Whiskey (Rittenhouse)
1/2 oz Smith & Cross Rum
1/2 oz Gran Classico (Campari)
1/2 oz Crème de Banane (Tempus Fugit)

Stir with ice, strain into a double old fashioned glass pre-rinsed with absinthe (Butterfly) and with a large ice cube, and garnish with an orange twist.
Two Wednesdays ago, I was perusing Kindred Cocktails when I spotted the Draft Day that reminded me of the Banana Boulevardier. The recipe was by Michael McCollum at Attaboy in Nashville circa 2018 and initially posted on the Bartender's Choice app. Once prepared, the Draft Day showcased an orange, black licorice, and rum funk aroma. Next, caramel and a hint of tropical on the sip flowed into rye, funky rum, banana, bitter orange, and tropical flavors on the swallow.
