Two Sundays ago, we paid a visit to Highland Kitchen where Will Quackenbush and Jimmy Lane were tending the bar. For a first cocktail, I was lured in by the drink of the day which was the Haymaker. When I asked Will about the history, he thought that the drink got entered into their cocktail book by way of the B Side Lounge. The research I did suggested that it was probably created during the B Side days and perhaps served there, but I found no evidence that the drink was created here in Boston. I was definitely drawn in to the drink for it reminded me of the Snake in the Grass from the Café Royal Cocktail Book except with Bourbon and lime instead of gin and lemon.
