Two Wednesdays ago, I was reading the May/June issue of Imbibe magazine and spotted the Aston Martin. The drink was created by San Francisco's Nopa bar manager Yanni Kehagiaras, and it drew me in with its aperitif-like style. Yanni based the drink off of the Rolls Royce Cocktail which I have not had, but the basic premise reminded me of the Stephen's Cocktail which we quaffed last year.
