History
When I started working at River Bar in March 2018, I was inspired by Byrrh Quinquina being on the bar. I then matched it with three ingredients that I have seen it work well with: mezcal, elderflower, and Aperol. For a name, I later dubbed this one Eyes on the Table after a work by Spanish born surrealist artist Remedios Varo.
FRY 2018.
