This cocktail I put on my menu at the wellborn. Where the whole menu is based off of classified ads . I love how wodka provides a nice clean base for the other ingredients to work well together all without losing the fact that this is indeed a wodka cocktail. Which is why I choose not to use any other spirt or modifiers. The food served at the hotel is Mediterranean. So in each cocktail I was trying to use something unique to the region in this case sesame seeds, which they use in tahina.
