Two Mondays ago, we made our way down to the South End to have drinks at Toro. For a first beverage, I asked bartender Andy McNees for the Waterloo Sunset. Andy explained that he had always wanted to name a drink after that Kinks' song. For ingredients, he described how the gin represented the English and the Lillet represented the French in the battle; as for the sherry, his answer was that Toro was a Spanish restaurant after all.
