ALEX DOW OF RENDEZVOUS (502 Mass Ave, Cambridge :: 617.576.1900)
HIS PICK Phipp's Fizz at Green Street (Old Overholt Rye, lemon juice, and Angostura bitters, topped with locally brewed AJ Stephans Ginger Beer)
"It's such a simple recipe that works for whatever weather New England decides to throw at you," says Dow of the Phipp's Fizz. "The spicy, tart finish of the ginger beer is stabilized by the sweet, smoky oak flavor of the rye. A straightforward, no-frills drink. Replace mezcal for the rye, and you have yourself a whole other drinking experience."
