bza commented on 7/07/2012:

Another Fort Point - and both with a rye base! How awkward, this is like the case of the multiple Autumn Sweaters...


Going to assume this one calls for apricot liqueur ala Rothman & Winter or Marie Brizard, rather than true apricot brandy as suggested by the Imbibe link.


Stew,

Maybe not - I'd think there would be enough sweetness in the Chinato to balance 2.5 oz of spirit - it's 3:1, assuming it's apricot brandy.

bza,

Maybe we need to name these Fort Point (Boston) and Fort Point (San Francisco)?

Thanks,

Zachary


Erik has confirmed it calls for apricot liqueur, making the drink a sort of Red Hook variant.
