Charles was pretty sour about his experience when he created this very aromatic sour.
On 16th May 2008, superstar bartender Charles Vexenat was unjustly jailed in New Orleans during Tales of the Cocktail after his friend Dre dropped a bottle in the Old Absinthe House. Fortunately for Charles he was saved a second day in the slammer by Melanie Asher, owner of Macchu Pisco who bailed them out. This cocktail, created at PDT, New York City, is Charles's tribute to Melanie.
