Two Wednesdays ago, Andrea and I ventured over to No. 9 Park for cocktails after getting dinner in Chinatown. For a first drink, Andrea requested from bartender Ryan Lotz the Kafka Does Jalisco. This drink seemed like an agave take on Eastern Standard's Metamorphosis with the citrus switched from lemon to lime; moreover, Ryan attributed himself and bartender Jenna Rycroft as the creators. The Kafka Does Jalisco gave forth a mineral agave and cinnamon and clove spice bouquet to the nose. A honey and lime sip then transitioned into a tequila, clove, and cinnamon swallow.
