After Beaker & Flask, Andrea was getting tired, so I dropped her off at the Ace Hotel where we were staying. When we passed by Clyde Commons which is below the Ace, I finally spotted some open seats, so I stopped in after returning from the room. The drink that caught my eye was the Nasturtium, and I asked bartender Jordan for this aperitif-like drink. I have a fondness for nasturtiums both in an aesthetic and culinary way. Besides using them in salads and as garnishes, I have also harnessed their peppery spice notes into cocktail bitters. Therefore, I was eager to see Clyde Common's homage to this flowering plant.
