The drink that Andrea requested at Craigie on Main was the Grand Tour which was a lighter drink featuring Amontillado sherry and a small amount of tequila. Moreover, with the pineapple syrup, citrus, and ice, it was almost Fix-like. The Grand Tour offered up a tequila and lime aroma. A lime and grape sip was followed by a swallow that began with tequila and ended with pineapple and nutty sherry notes.
