the asbury

2 oz Tequila (Jose Cuervo Tradicional)
1 oz Campari
1 oz Lime Juice
1/2 oz Domaine de Canton
1 dash Orange Bitters (Angostura Orange)

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with nutmeg (optional, skipped here).
For our last table at the Presbytere cocktail reception at Tales on Thursday, we visited good old John Myers. He is pictured above with his sign stating that he is from The Grill Room in Portland, OR. This not only annoyed him since he is from another Portland, namely the one in Maine, but this also annoyed people from Oregon who recognized neither him nor his establishment's name. Myers' creation paired up tequila with Campari which have proven in the past to be rather complementary flavors. The lime juice and Domaine de Canton ginger liqueur rounded out the drink to make for something as delightful but more complex than a well mixed Margarita. In true Myers fashion, he colorfully described his drink as "a kid right in the womb... pink and delicious!"

Mixed this up a few days ago. Beautiful, delicate, well-balanced cocktail. This one deserves widespread fame.
