Two Tuesdays ago, Andrea and I visited bartender Sahil Mehta at Estragon for dinner. For a drink, I spotted one of his previous drink of the day offerings in his notebook, and the combination of apricot, Cynar, and lemon reminded me of the One One Thousand. Sahil was inspired to create a Sidecar variation with more funk by substituting apricot and Cynar in place of the triple sec. For a name, I dubbed this one the Abricot Chevalier (the Apricot Knight) after a 1969 Salvador Dali painting.
