As a follow up to the Green Harbor at Island Creek Oyster Bar, I ask bartender Vikram Hedge for the Paper Schooner that was subtitled "the next quad." Vik explained that they wanted to retired Sam Ross' Paper Plane from the menu and replace it with a drink inspired by it. Therefore, he and Tom Schlesinger-Guidelli set to work. While the recipe listed above has five parts, the two half parts, namely the lemon juice and simple syrup, were pre-mixed as a cordial.
