Two Mondays ago, we paid a visit to Estragon for dinner. For a first libation, I asked bartender Sahil Mehta if I could try his submission recipe for the Tales of the Cocktail "Taming the Hurricane" competition. His reinvention used Batavia Arrack as the rum and added Campari and English-style IPA flavors to the mix. Moreover, I was interested in revisiting the Campari-passion fruit combination that worked so well in the Novara and Antoine's Demise.
