Ingredients:
—1.5 oz. Sotol
—.5 oz. Luxardo Bitter Bianco
—.75 oz. lime juice
—.75 oz. mint simple syrup
—.25 oz. Amargo-Vallet
—soda
—mint

Directions: 
Combine Sotol, Luxardo Bitter Bianco, lime juice and mint simple syrup in a shaker, shake and strain into a Collins glass. Add ice and top with soda, slapped mint and a straw. Finally, top with an Amargo-Vallet float to create two distinct layers.

Named after the East Dock set in the 1993 classic “Jurassic Park,” this cocktail is both refreshing and medicinal. Housemade mint syrup, using herbs from Bar Biscay’s garden, blends well with Sotol, which is made from a wild desert plant, distilled in a similar manner to artisan mezcal and made to be an ideal mint topper. A splash of Amargo-Vallet, a unique Mexican bitter spirit with its own healing qualities in its use of the calming Angostura root, makes for a refreshing and restorative cocktail.
