Man in the Yellow Hat
The Man In the Yellow Hat was devised by Sean Saunders at Devon in New York City, and presumably named for Curious George’s patient guardian from the beloved children’s book series.
Indeed, the drink tastes like something the character would enjoy, with rich banana-bread flavors and a warm sun-tinged nutty spice. It’s a wonderful drink for sipping by the window as you calmly watch your adopted monkey ward wreak adorable mayhem in the neighborhood.
- 1½ parts Rye whiskey or Bourbon
- ¼ part Banana liqueur
- ¼ part Walnut liqueur
- ¼ part Cinnamon syrup
- 2 dashes Aromatic bitters or Walnut bitters
Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into a short glass over one large cube (or a handful of regular ice). Garnish with an orange or lemon peel.
