cleansing tonic

1 1/2 oz Olmeca Altos Plata Tequila
1/2 oz Cocchi Americano
1/2 oz Demerara Syrup
1/2 oz Lemon Juice
4 dash Celery Bitters

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.
After Myers & Chang, Andrea and I went around the block to the Franklin Café where Sabrina Kershaw was tending bar. For a first drink, Andrea selected the Cleansing Tonic. With tequila, citrus, aromatized wine, and celery bitters, the drink reminded me a bit on paper of Phil Ward's Loop Tonic albeit a less herbal one. Once mixed, the Cleansing Tonic greeted the senses with an agave and lemon aroma. A citrus and wine sip then led into a tequila swallow with pleasing herbal notes.
