Dry Tongue Therapy

Guillermo Bravo, Featherweight | Brooklyn, NY

This drink, which features a “police line-up of ingredients,” says Guillermo Bravo, was created for Brooklyn bar Featherweight’s Tiki Tuesdays. While each ingredient manages to shine through individually, Wray & Nephew’s funk “stands tallest with a cocky smirk.”

  • 4 dashes absinthe
