The Infuriated Mandrill takes its name from the stupefying banana flavor
that drives primates wild. This delectable palate-pleaser features all the
flavors of the rainbow -- ginger, anise, banana -- in a really scary
light-green milky fluid. It has a fascinating presentation, since the
cocktail burbles and roils geologically, even at rest.
You can try replacing the Looza (TM) with some other kind of banana nectar,
but the Looza (TM) stuff has this really long, cool Euro bottle that is very
space-age and Spock-like. I prefer to mix up a few Infuriated Mandrills when
I'm negotiating a bootleg video smuggling scheme in the back room of an
Ethiopian restaurant. It keeps those Teamster bastards off their balance
long enough for me to close the deal.
4 oz Looza (TM) Banana Nectar
1-1/2 oz vodka
1-1/2 oz absinthe
fresh chopped ginger
green food coloring
Mix all ingredients. Serve chilled in highball glass with mint garnish.
