the kirby

1 1/2 oz Olmeca Altos Blanco Tequila
3/4 oz Green Chartreuse
1/2 oz Combier Pamplemousse Liqueur
3/4 oz Lime Juice

Dry shake to mix, pour into a Collins glass, fill with crushed ice, garnish with 3 dashes Peychaud's Bitters and a paper parasol, and add a straw.
On Wednesday to weeks ago, Andrea and I sought out dinner at Firebrand Saints. For a drink, I asked bartender Dave Erickson for the Kirby which seemed like an interesting herbal and grapefruit-tinged Margarita of sorts. Dave mentioned as he set to work that this was bartender Juan Mederos' creation. Once in the glass, the Kirby shared a cherry and anise aroma from the bitters. Next, grapefruit and lime paired elegantly on the sip, and the swallow showcased the tequila and Chartruese flavors with a herbal and grapefruit finish.
