Two Thursdays ago, I stopped into Drink and acquired a seat at bartender Will Thomson's section. For a start, Will suggested a Negroni variation he crafted called the Onset. When I inquired about the name, he mentioned how Genever was the predecessor of gin although with the other ingredients that explanation sort of fell apart. He then described how he had to work on the night of a concert that he wanted to go to; the band's name translated to the Onset. When he created this drink that night, he paid tribute to his bitter moment.
