Two Tuesdays ago, I ventured down to No. 9 Park for drinks after getting dinner in Chinatown. For a first libation, bartender Tyler Wang suggested a sherry-based number he calls Spice & Wine. His recipe was influenced by Sahil Mehta's Butchertown that Tyler enjoyed at Estragon. Instead of the Butchertown's kümmel, Tyler opted for aquavit, and in place of the honey bourbon, he reached for honey-sweetened Yellow Chartreuse.
