James Anderson of One Door North crafts up their Fireside Tahona
Our friend, James Anderson, chats with us about his journey as a bartender and shares with us the recipe of One Door North's customer favorite cocktail called Fireside Tahona.
2 oz Cali Fino Reposado
1 oz passion fire tonic
.5 oz lime
.5 oz honey simple
Top with dried lime, squirt of orange zest
What's the story behind this cocktail?
We wanted to create something that reminds you of sitting by a campfire. The fire tonic gives you that warm feeling, and the passion fruit is cool and refreshing on the back end, sort of like how your back is always cold while sitting next to a big fire.
If you had to pair this cocktail with a dish, what would you pair it with?
I would pair it with the ceviche. the acidity and citrus from the fire tonic complement the dish so well.
