3/4 oz Becherovka
1/2 oz Pistachio Orgeat (*)
1/2 oz Lime Juice
1/4 oz Cinnamon Honey Syrup (*)
Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.
(*) I surmised that using regular orgeat and/or cinnamon syrup or honey syrup here would create a delicious parallel drink.
Two Thursdays ago, Andrea and I met up at Local 149 for dinner. When speaking with bartender John Mayer, he mentioned that he was working on a few drinks for a local Bacardi competition. The one that caught my attention for its ingredients also captured my intrigue with the name, Face for Radio. John explained that the housemade pistachio orgeat led to an unattractive appearance, but the flavor combination was good enough for him to overlook it.
