Two Mondays ago, we headed over to Brookline for dinner at Pomodoro when Stephen Shellenberger was tending bar. For a first libation, Stephen made me another drink using Brandymel, a funky Portuguese honey-herbal liqueur made with moonshine brandy. To that, he added Norwegian aquavit and lemon juice such that it came across as a Bee's Knees variation. For a name, I dubbed it the Busy Bee after a famous airline in Norway.
