Mixologist’s Notes on the Winter Sour:
“I created this cocktail for a panel discussion at the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco in early 2009. Each of us on the panel was asked to present a cocktail in an “audience favorite” style competition and this drink lost by one vote to my friend Jeff Hollinger. I think he rigged it.”
