On my way home from work two Sunday nights ago, there was time to catch last call at Backbar. For a drink, I asked Kat Lamper for the Death to Winter from the menu, and it turned out to be her libation. The menu read "almond" instead of falernum, so I assumed that it meant orgeat and the combination reminded me of the Cuban Anole with pineapple juice. However, Kat explained that their house falernum has a decent almond aspect to it, and they listed it that way for allergy concerns. With it still being quite chilly outside, why not beg for the death of winter?
