bourbon bimbo recipe!

The Trenchermen, Bucktown’s anticipated new restaurant from Matt Eisler, designer Kevin Heisner, and acclaimed chefs (and brothers) Mike and Patrick Sheerin (Blackbird and the Signature Room, respectively), is almost open.

To tide you over, beverage director Tona Palomino (New York’s WD-50) created a citrusy concoction that’s bound to pack a punch at your party. Cheers!
