The Cure Thing takes the classic sour formula but brings modern techniques and some unique flavours into a still excellently balanced cocktail. The inclusion of BBQ sauce give off slight Bloody Mary vibes in terms of mouth-feel, but this drink is balanced beautifully and is surprisingly refreshing.
