The other drink I had at Estragon was the Utrecht-Baden. Bartender Sahil Mehta explained that he had created it for the Spanish Sip event back in August of 2011, and that the recipe was a riff on a Negroni. Utrecht and Baden were two treaties signed by the combatants in the War of the Spanish Succession and the treaties helped to maintain the European balance of power in the 18th century. The two treaties were signed in the Dutch city of Utrecht in 1713 and in the Swiss city of Baden in 1714. The Dutch aspect would certainly explain Sahil's use of Genever here.
