28) SF Cutter

1.5 oz. Tanqueray Gin
1 oz. Corralejo Blanco Tequila
.5 oz. Cynar
2 dashes Regan's Orange Bitters

Place all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake vigorously and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a twist.

1) Ed and I aren't sure this is actually a good drink. The first sip wasn't a real wow moment, but after a few more sips we found the flavors oddly compelling.

2) This drink will put hair on your chest, as well as various other parts of your body. I myself awoke this morning with a full beard.

3) I suspect that after a few sips of this drink, one might find the flavor of socks oddly compelling.

4) "Well, let's find out." is not the correct answer when I say something like, "Do you think Gin and Tequila would go together?"

5) Cynar is an Italian bitter whose chief component is artichoke. 'Round these parts, we call them avocadoes.

6) Number five is an inside joke.
