For a second cocktail at Estragon, I spotted a curious four equal parts drink in Sahil Mehta's notebook. Sahil mentioned that he was inspired by the Hoop La! that appears first in The Savoy Cocktail Book; there, the combination of brandy, orange liqueur, Lillet, and lemon was so popular that it went under three other names in the book: the Frank Sullivan, the Hey Hey, and the Odd McIntyre. When I inquired about the pinch of salt and whether it was to accent the Batavia Arrack, Sahil merely felt that the drink felt unseasoned.
