I had a knockout meal at midtown’s The Waterboy restaurant recently, which included a spicy white bean puree-smeared bruschetta, speckled with warm chunks of cotechino sausage and strewn with fresh arugula; and a fabulous dish of pan-seared Dayboat scallops, tangled tastily with bucattini pasta and roasted cauliflower. We started this repast with an uber-refreshing, perk-up-your-tastebuds cocktail called a Papa Sanchez. Perfect for a warm Sacramento evening, the drink was prepared with Zapopan Reposado Tequila, St. Germain elderflower liqueur and Triple Sec, and enlivened with fresh grapefruit and lemon juices. Bring your friends in to try this zesty and rejuvenating liquid treat.
