Take the Monkey and Rum
- 1.0 oz. Funk rum
- 1.0 oz. Mt. Gay Eclipse rum
- 0.5 oz. Crème de banane (Tempus Fugit)
- 0.5 oz. Crème de cacao (Tempus Fugit)
- 0.5 oz. Averna
- 0.5 oz. lemon juice
- 2-3 dashes of Angostura bitters
Shake with ice and strain into coupe.
This is sort of my take on the Funky Monkey, without coconut and more bitter, served up. Rum, chocolate and banana are all still there and prominent. You could certainly go full tiki here and serve it over crushed ice with some crazy garnish.
But sometimes I’m lazy and just want to get to my yummy drink.
