Mildly smokey with a smooth ginger habanero finish! This cocktail is inspired by a local bad ass chiropractor, affectionately known as Dr. Gus. Well, I was fortunate enough to meet Dr. Gus a couple years ago while consulting in Westmont, IL.
Needless to say, I discovered quickly why he was so beloved and well received! The Dr. is incredibly kind, intelligent and passionate. Over the course of a few weeks, he and his awesome wife became my favorite regulars. However, I felt like something was up? No one could be this kind and awesome all the time? So, one day I told Dr. Gus my suspicions that if someone were to make him mad, he would become a maniacal diva. An alter ego was born (Dr. Octavius)🤣
Cheers to one of the best humans I’ve ever met, and I hope this finds you and your family well.
