It’s Friday and you know what that means, it is time to put away those TPS reports and belly up to the bar for a cocktail. For some of you, that means breaking out your Boston shaker and recipe books, but if you are looking for a great new recipe to try then look no further than the Mutineer’s Cocktail Friday.
This week we have a recipe from Sahil Meta bartender at Boston’s Estragon tapas bar, and finalist in the 2012 Luxardo Cocktail Cup. In this cocktail, Sahil combines smokey, fresh, and sweet for a complex and delicious cocktail. Check it out, and start your weekend off right.
