Author Notes: This drink was on the original menu of Parc Bistro in Philadelphia but has since been removed. I miss it dearly, as it was the absolute perfect cocktail for sipping on a warm afternoon (or morning - it's brunch-appropriate too) overlooking the park that gave the restaurant its name. Meaghan F
