  • A favorite. I love the way the lemon comes through; less bitter than the search for delicious and I think a bit more compelling — ☆☆☆☆☆
  • Must try

So... this drink. I think

So... this drink. I think that this was the original. It inspired Kirk Estopinal at Cure in New Orleans to come up with the Search for Delicious, which was featured in Beta Cocktails. I would guess that (as Misty Kalkofen put it) a "game of telephone" ensued and thus the Little Giuseppe. All three are significant. Thanks, Zachary
