After the Hawthorne, I wandered over to the Citizen Public House where I found a seat in front of John Mayer. For a drink idea, he suggested an apple brandy, amaro, and sherry libation that he had just created for the Puritan & Co.'s new cocktail menu. He had also recently used this recipe in a ShakeStir competition and called it the Cosmo #2 with the explanation, "The Corpse Reviver and Corpse #2 are night and day, just two delicious drinks utilizing a great name. I decided to revive that tradition with an elegant, sophisticated and 'cosmopolitan' cocktail." However, when gave the recipe to the restaurant, he had changed the name to the Uncosmopolitan.
