This provocatively named cocktail is pleasantly tart and very smooth. It is stronger than it’s cousin the Sidecar, though perhaps lacks a bit of the Sidecar’s distinctive and enduring magic. (Recipe coming soon!) However, it is definitely a good cocktail when one is in the mood for something smooth with heavy notes of citrus.
