Yesterday we met Samantha Dickerson, who tends bar at Cowboy Ciao and Kazimirez World Wine Bar in Scottsdale.Her's her award-winning recipe for the Rough Draft cocktail.
Yesterday, Dickerson explained her view of cocktail craft, differentiating bar tending and mixology.
Her choice of words echoed the phrasing of a quality chef: A cocktail as a drink
should stand on its own; a cocktail should be about the liquor; superior
ingredients make a difference.
Samantha's Rough Draft reflects her view. Great
ingredients, a nice balance of sweet and sour, and best of all -- smooth going
