After Brick and Mortar, I started towards home via Union Square, and there, I made a pit stop at Backbar. I was greeted by bartender Sam Treadway who mentioned some of the new drinks that they had come up with; he said that they had taken an interest in merging pairs of recipes after being inspired by Ted Kilpatrick's Comanche Club. The one that sounded most appealing was a cross between an Alaska and a South Side that Joe Cammarata and Alex Homans developed. They named the creation the Kodiak Island which is an island off the southern side of Alaska.
