1 1/2 oz Gordon's Gin
3/4 oz Grapefruit Juice
1/4 oz Simple Syrup
2 dash Peychaud's Bitters

Shake with ice, strain into a Highball glass with 3 oz soda water, and top with ice. Garnish with a lime wedge and add straws.
After Brick & Mortar, I took Pegu Doug across Mass Ave and one street over to Green Street to give him an idea of what Boston cocktail was like a decade or more ago via this Cambridge cocktail mecca. The other connection is that Green Street is where I met Misty Kalkofen back in 2007, and after her stint at Drink, she returned back to Cambridge to open Brick & Mortar where we had just been. For a drink, I opted for the Skipaway -- a drink that I not only have not had before but one that I have not spotted in any drink book or web search to date. This grapefruit and Peychaud's Bitters for lemon Tom Collins began with a lime aroma from the garnish. Next, a carbonated grapefruit sip led into gin's juniper and other botanicals on the swallow with an anise and grapefruit finish.
