I sought out delicious recipes featuring Meyer lemons, blood oranges, Satsumas, grapefruit, and lime, looking for drinks where the citrus was allowed to really shine. After a few long sessions of shaking and stirring citrusy concoctions created by bar stars like Jackson Cannon of The Hawthorne in Boston, Sean McClure of Craft in New York, Debbi Peek of the Bristol in Chicago, Todd Maul of Clio in Boston, and a few others, these 15 favorites emerged: refreshing drinks with an excellent balance of tart acidity and fresh sweetness. Just the right thing to sip as we wait for the weather to get warmer.
'Todd Maul' on Serious Eats
American rye, gin, applejack, cognac? Interesting vermouths, bitters, monastery cordials and housemade Swedish punsch? Smoked ice? Barely a jigger of vodka anywhere? Hallelujah! At Clio, Todd Maul works more cleverly with cane spirits than many bars that boast about them.
