The Good Samaritan from Paul Rogers at Nashville’s Marsh House is a Whiskey Sour, anointed with the fragrances of faraway lands. Crisp lemon and oaky bourbon give way to a light, intriguing banana-raisin flavor that offers only the barest sweetness.
Rogers’ recipe calls for amontillado sherry, but any dry sherry type will be nice. If your sherry is absolutely bone-dry, like a Fino, you might want to add a few drops of simple syrup to compensate.
- 1 part Bourbon
- 1 part Dry sherry
- 1 part Banana liqueur
- 1 part Lemon juice
Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into an ice-filled short glass. Garnish with a fresh or dehydated lemon wheel – or nothing at all but the lovely scent of the drink.
