Man in the Yellow Hat

Man in the Yellow Hat cocktail with rye whiskey, banana liqueur, walnut liqueur, cinnamon syrup, and Angostura bitters

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.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
