Thomas “T” Leggett is known for his love of local ingredients in the Southern-inpsired cocktails he concocts at The Roosevelt in Richmond, and he recently revamped the cocktail menu, including many new originals that have become fast favorites at the bar. One especially caught our eye — The Calamante — because its centerpiece is tequila infused with Douglas fir.
