“This is a drink with kind of a snotty name: ‘And Fire Green as Grass.’ It’s from the Dylan Thomas poem, Fern Hill. We print the last two lines of Fern Hill on every one of our menus. It’s all there—rhythm, melody, big ideas. It’s the closest thing we have to a mission statement around here. This is, after eight menus, the cocktail that I am most proud of. For better or worse, this is the closest I’ve come to that white whale.” – Will Hollingsworth

¼ ounce St. Elizabeth Allspice Dram
