About the Drink

Although it's notoriously a tedious drink to make, Don Lee, a bartender at PDT, created a more efficient method. Ryan explains,"You shake it with one cube of really nice ice instead of shaking it for 20 minutes, and then just add more soda water than you typically would, which actually ends up with a much nicer texture."
