Two Sundays ago, Andrea and I ventured over to Green Street for drinks. For a start, I asked bartender Philip MacLeod for the Frisco (Sour), one of my old favorites from the early Eastern Standard menu. The original Frisco was a whiskey drink sweetened and spiced with Bénédictine akin to a Rusty Nail, and later lemon juice was added to balance the drink out. It also seemed appropriate to return to this drink at Green Street, for it was there that I was introduced to the Junior -- a Frisco Sour with the lemon juice swapped out for lime juice and Angostura Bitters.
