I consider Jeff Faile, bar manager at Palena, a friend. This Modern Luxury article on the expanded restaurant is great on the food, but does some injustice to one of Jeff’s brilliant cocktails (vodka?!). And since he has shared the recipe with me, I can now both correct the record and share it with you.
The Bitter End
1.5 oz Plymouth Gin
1 oz Cointreau
1/2 oz Campari
1/2 oz fresh lemon juice
Healthy dashes of chocolate bitters.
Shake with fresh ice, double-strain into a chilled cocktail glass, and garnish with a lemon twist.
Or you can just go sit at the bar at Palena and tell him I sent you.
