Monkey's Paw

This cocktail's flavor is layered, deep and sophisticated, but at the same time surprisingly playful, refreshing and funky

Classic cocktails celebrate the meticulous technique and artfulness of marrying relatively few ingredients in perfect harmony to create a simple, yet sophisticated beverage, whereas the tiki craze shows the funky, complex and rich flavors of the rums, fruits and tropical flare of the Caribbean. The Monkey's Paw brings these two concepts together in it's relatively simple make up.

Notes

The banana liquor itself is made with a little cognac, so the split-base of rum along with Park is able to pull out all those delicious, bright esters residing in both the banana and honey. At first site it looks like a straightforward sour, but take a sip and you'll feel like it should come with an umbrella.

Honey Syrup is 2 parts honey and 1 part water.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 Ounce oz Barbarossa White Rum
  • 1/2 Ounce Park Carte Blanche (VS) Cognac
  • 3/4 Ounces Lemon Juice
  • 3/8 Ounces Giffard Banane du Brasil
  • 3/8 Ounces Honey Syrup
