Expanse Cocktail #73
MCRN Tachi

The MCRN Tachi was a gunship on the Donnager, used by the survivors of the Cant to escape from its destruction by Protogen stealth ships.

This drink shares influences from Mars in general, and from Lt. Lopez, who gives his life to get the Canterbury survivors to its safety. Later, it keeps its base spirit, but undergoes a tremendous transformation to become a non-military home for 4 misfits.
