About this Cocktail

I was inspired by a Monkey Gland riff, the Monkey's Paw, that added banana liqueur to the recipe. I had been tinkering with the Missionary's Downfall and had creme de peche on my mind, and suddenly thought of the phrase "monkey steals the peach" which is a caption to an internet-famous move in the Ninja Mind Control book. Instead of just adding the liqueur on top of the classic like with the Monkey Paw, I also changed the red element from grenadine to Campari, for Campari and peach pair rather well.

Ingredients:
  • 2 oz Gin
  • 1 oz Orange Juice
  • 1/4 oz Crème de Peche
  • 1/4 oz Campari
  • 1/2 bsp Absinthe (1/16 oz or a heavy dash)
Preparation:

Shake with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with an orange twist.
