Cocktail of the Month: Lesson Learn’d

By Sean Glenn, Beverage Director of No. 308

The Papaw is a drink 308’s Ben Clemons first made years ago, and it’s become a modern classic at our bar. Ben recently handed over the beverage program to me, so as a tribute to him, I wanted to rework one of his drinks while keeping the ingredients and ideas intact. Enjoy Lesson Learn’d, my take on the now-classic The Pawpaw.
