Siesta, Fort Defiance

Among a list of excellent, vaguely nautical gin and rum-based cocktails on the menu at Fort Defiance (they are
based in Red Hook, after all), the Siesta always stands out as a nice, palate-cleansing change of pace, consisting solely of tequila, grapefruit, and Campari. Not too overbearing for a sweltering summer day, and fairly perfect for washing down a plate of their oysters.
365 Van Brunt St., Red Hook
