After the ‘Army and Navy’ cocktail proved to be such a cult favourite with our Kocktail club members, we thought it time that we introduce you to a modern classic that riffs on the Army and Navy’s base and takes it down an even more interesting avenue by tagging tequila in, in place of the traditional gin base.
The Infante was created by the straight-talking Giuseppe Gonzalez, during his tenure at NYC’s Dutch Kills bar. Gonzalez, renowned for his no nonsense approach to the business, was asked whether he considered himself a bartender or a mixologist. His response: “Bartender. There is dignity in that word. My father was a bartender. If I had called him a mixologist, he would have looked at me like I was stupid”.
