Going to assume this one

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

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
