Good Samaritan

Good Samaritan cocktail by Paul Rogers, with bourbon, dry sherry, banana liqueur, and lemon juice

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.
