After attending a wedding on Sunday, we stopped into Green Street for two reasons (besides needing a drink). One was the old standard -- Derric Crothers was bartending, and two was that the Aquapocalypse was upon us but Cambridge was safe since they had their own separate reservoir and water system. For a nightcap, I chose an oddball drink on the menu that I had always wanted to try, the Good Humor, but had procrastinated on in favor of more standard drinks. The Good Humor was created LeNell Smothers' partner when they were living in Brooklyn. She and Ben were also raising chickens and they needed to find a use for all of the leftover fresh egg yolks going to go to waste after mixing up egg white-containing drinks like Whiskey Sours and Ramos Gin Fizzes. Ben's genius was to make an eggnog-like flip using Aperol as the base spirit. His recipe was the same as the one Green Street now uses except his measure for the Aperol was 2 ounces.
