Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail glass, and garnish with a lemon twist.
Drink was initially made with dry vermouth (Noilly Prat), but in remaking it, blanc vermouth seemed to round out the edges better. Feel free to take that route (or split the vermouth 50:50 dry:blanc) if your palate requires a more austere dryness.
I was inspired by the Zemurray by Vince Lund then of French 75 that he named after "Sam the Banana Man" Zemurray, the long time king of the New Orleans banana business. I wondered if I could craft a parallel Martini riff. For a name, I made this drink a tribute to Boston fruit seller Andrew Preston & Wellfleet ship captain Lorenzo Baker who teamed up in the 1870s to start importing bananas to Boston. This ventured soon morphed into the Boston Fruit Company that later merged with Zemurray's and other tropical fruit importing ventures to form the United Fruit Company that later became Chiquita.
