Author Notes

There are times when coming up with cocktails is a grind of a process -- you start with an idea, and test a seemingly endless number of variations on the theme until you either find one that works or give up in frustration. Then there are cocktails, like the Valtellina, that seem to spring fully formed from the foam. —Erik Lombardo
