For my second drink at Stoddard's, I asked bartender Tony Iamunno if he had any drinks he was working on. He mentioned that he had a drink called Newton's Downfall; I was expecting an apple drink for I imagined a Sir Isaac theme, but Tony meant the cookie. Through a spoonful of fig jam in conjunction with the other flavors in the mix, the drink reminded Tony of a Fig Newton. Also of note was how Tony supplemented a softer citrus fruit juice, namely orange, with acid phosphate's crispness to balance the sweetness in the drink similar to how lemon or lime juice alone would.
