estragon sahil mehta angostura bitters cocktail
Two Mondays ago, we headed down to Estragon for dinner. For a first drink, bartender Sahil Mehta made me the Elegy, a recipe he created for a recent Angostura Bitters competition. The Elegy began its lament with lemon and apple aromas. The lemon sip offered a hint of apple notes, but most of the apple came through on the swallow along with herbal notes from the Averna and Angostura and a tart lemon finish.
