citizen's arrest

1 1/4 oz El Maestro Oloroso Sherry
1 oz Dolin Sweet Vermouth
3/4 oz Punt e Mes
1 pinch Salt

Stir with ice and strain into a rocks glass with fresh ice. Twist an orange peel over the top and add straws.
For Andrea's first drink at Fairsted Kitchen, she requested the Citizen's Arrest. Bartender Alex Homans explained how the recipe was crafted by Danielle Berman as a means to continue one's night but with the breaks on. Since Andrea was the one driving, it was a good start to put her consumption level somewhat on arrest. In the glass, the orange oil brightened up the complex grape aroma. The grape medley continued on into the sip, and it was followed by the sherry's nuttiness and the muted bitter from the Punt e Mes being mitigated by the salt on the swallow.
