Two Mondays ago, Andrea and I ventured over to Sarma for dinner. For a drink, I asked bartender Hillary Neuman for the Merchant's Fog Cutter. Their Fog Cutter riff had a few alterations including aquavit in the mix like in the Viking Fog Cutter, Madeira instead of sherry as the float like No. 9 Park's version, lime instead of lemon like at Lost Lake, and falernum instead of orgeat like the Lifting the Fog at Loyal Nine.
