On Wednesday last week, Andrea and I traveled over to Drink in Fort Point to celebrate Graham's birthday. For my first cocktail, bartender Bryn Tattan wanted to make me a drink she has been working on, the Tequila Mockingbird. The drink had an attractive design on the egg white foam akin to a barista's latte art. The sip started with a smooth agave flavor coupled with light lime notes; this was followed by a decent smoky signature on the swallow. Overall, the drink was refreshingly light and simple like a Pisco Sour, albeit one with a more flavorful spirit.
The euphemisms are getting a bit stale, suffice to say: four people in Boston -- two of whom are much more prolific writers than the other two (including the originator of this blog, who has no excuse apart from laziness) -- who drink and tell.
