Sunday two weeks ago, Andrea and I paid a visit to Backbar in Somerville where Sam Treadway and Alex Homans were tending bar. For a first drink, I asked Sam for the drink of the week called the Confederation Bridge. The recipe was a collaboration of a few of the bartenders as a riff on the classic Drambuie cocktail, the Prince Edward. For a name, they chose the bridge that connects New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island.
