the african queen

1 1/2 oz Rittenhouse Rye
1/4 oz Yellow Chartreuse
1/4 oz Averna
1 tsp Chinola Passion Fruit Liqueur (Passion Fruit Syrup)
1 tsp Vanilla Syrup

Build in a double old fashioned glass, add a large ice cube, stir to mix and chill, and garnish with an orange twist.
Two Saturdays ago, I made a recipe called the African Queen created by Jon Mateer of TPC Sawgrass in St. Augusteen that I had spotted earlier in the week on his Instagram (@vodkapaysmybills). The combination seemed like the rye whiskey version of the Pickwick Club that I came up with on the fly at Drink a month before. In the glass, the African Queen conjured up orange, rye, and caramel aromas. Next, honey and caramel notes on the sip danced into rye, passion fruit, vanilla, and herbal flavors on the swallow.
