After our trip to the Blue Room, we crossed the courtyard and paid bar manager Josh Taylor a visit at West Bridge. While looking over the menu, I was able to narrow down my pick to three choices, and Josh recommended that I try the Love & Fear from that short list. I was definitely curious to see if the pineapple-Fernet pairing worked here as well as it had in the Velvet Goldmine, Agave Maria, Fernet Fix, and other drinks.
