Jackson Cannon's Cold Spring Cocktail
This winter sour from Jackson Cannon of Island Creek Oyster Bar and the newly opened The Hawthorne balances a boozy cognac edge with smooth maple syrup and Meyer lemon. Though there's as much maple as lemon, it's not at all sweet, just warming and aromatic.
If you don't have rhubarb bitters, cranberry bitters work well as a substitute. We used Pierre Ferrand cognac.
