Two Thursdays ago, I paid a visit to bartender Todd Maul at Clio. For a cocktail, I requested the Brazilian Million which was his cachaça-laden variation of the classic Millionaire. The drink began with an apricot aroma with hints of the damson plum fruit. Next, the lime sip contained a berry-like flavor and was followed by a grassy swallow with a tart apricot and lime finish.
