For my next drink at Estragon, bartender Sahil Mehta wanted to show me another one of his contest entries called the Diaspora. The Diaspora got him into the semi-finals of the Bacardi cocktail competition held in October at the Boston Cocktail Summit. Since Estragon cannot carry Bacardi due to its cordial license restrictions, Sahil made this drink for me with Ron Abuelo, a Panamanian rum that is allowed under these strange Boston laws.
