Signature

Vodka • Sweet
Phil Collins

There’s more to this herbaceous play on a Tom Collins drink than its clever name (though it certainly doesn’t detract from its appeal). Made by Jackson Cannon of The Hawthorne in Boston, the bright, citrusy and thirst-quenching (thanks to cooling cucumber vodka) cocktail is best enjoyed “in the air tonight”—“no jacket required.”
