Life Behind Bars 2015: The 59's

The-59sThe Drink: Negraponi
The Bartender: Taka

The 59’s is tons of fun, and their resident super-genki mad scientist of mixology, Taka, let me sample his latest project: a hybrid bastard child of the Negroni and Spumoni cocktails, the Negraponi. Start with Campari, Cinzano, and gin, then add fresh crushed grapefruit for a good time. Beach chair and parasol recommended.

Of course, no time is truly a good time with only one drink.
That’s why I followed Taka’s recommendation, and had a shot of ice-cold Jagermeister served out of what appeared to be a test tube.  Mad scientist indeed! Thanks Taka!  -RT
