After Stoddard's, I continued my Sunday bar crawl to Drink where I found a seat in front of bartender Jeff Grdinich. For a start, Jeff recommended a variation on the 1919 Cocktail proportions that was crafted by Ezra Star. When I commented that it looked more like an agave-based Red Hook, Jeff replied that it was like Boston and New York took a trip to Mexico. Although I did not inquire about what Ezra named the drink after, I have to believe given the spirit choice that it is a reference to the beginning of the Mexican Revolution.
