ends of the earth

2 oz Añejo Tequila (Cimarron Reposado)
1/2 oz Crème de Banane (Tempus Fugit)
1/2 oz Amaro Nardini

Stir with ice, strain into an old fashioned glass with a large ice cube, and garnish with an orange twist.
Two Fridays ago, I was scanning the Kindred Cocktails database for an intriguing recipe when I came across Chicago drink maker Applejack's Ends of the Earth. Its combination of agave and Amaro Nardini reminded me of how well the two worked in the Don't Forget the Struggle, Don't Forget the Streets and the Five Points, and I figured that banana liqueur in the mix would make things even tastier. Once prepared, the Ends of the Earth donated an orange, caramel, and vegetal aroma. Next, a caramelized banana sip concluded in a tequila and bitter herbal swallow.
