Cocktail Hour: The Pedro Piper

Cocktail Hour: The Pedro Piper

The most interesting cocktails in the city come from Steven Clement at Salazar. He experiments with sweet, savory, spice (and everything nice) in order to come up with cocktails that are both beautiful and delicious, as well as inventive.  The Pedro Piper is a twist […]
