1/2 oz Pimm's No. 1
1/2 oz House Sour Mix (*)
1/4 oz Pineapple Juice
Shake with ice and strain into a rocks glass filled with ice (**). Garnish with an orange wheel.
(*) I know that Eastern Standard's sour mix is lemon, lime, simple, and a little egg white. I have seen sour mix made with 1 part each lemon, lime, and simple, but I have a feeling that Eastern's is 2 parts simple to 1 part lemon, 1 part lime.
(**) See text -- I recommend not serving it on the rocks; straining it into a cocktail glass would be preferable here.
Two Sundays ago, I needed to get some dinner so I decided to stop by Eastern Standard. For my first drink, I asked bartender Hugh Fiore for the Haverna that recently appeared on the menu. With the combination of Averna and pineapple juice, it reminded me of the Averna Pineapple Shrub, except here the acid source was citrus juice instead of vinegar. I was not sure whether the drink name was a combination of Havana and Averna (some Havana variations contain pineapple juice), so when I asked Hugh, he forwarded me on to Kevin Martin who created the drink. Kevin explained that Averna's marketing slogan akin to the dairy council's "Got Milk?" is "Have Averna" which morphed into the Haverna.
