Monday last week, Andrea and I stopped in to Estragon for dinner. Bartender Sahil Mehta recommended the Tres Piña for my first drink which sounded good as it reminded me of the Under the Volcano. Sahil later explained the name to symbolize a trio of ingredients; both the heart of the agave plant that is roasted and the pineapple are called piña. For the third, Sahil found the Cynar's artichoke to very similar in appearance to the other two piñas. Moreover, his first two ideas, the Smokin' Choke and the Piñata, had already been taken.
