Rainforest Tears

Bradford Knutson, Ricardo’s, Lacey, WA

“A touch of gin was added to give the drink a dry balance to the sweetness. Zapaca is from Guatemala, with its tumultuous history, and the lime zest looked like green tears in the drink, hence the name.”

.5 oz (15 ml) La Quintinye Vermouth Royal Dry Vermouth

.25 oz (7.5 ml) Marie Brizard Apry
