Mad cocktail scientist Todd Maul—previously known as Boston’s best bartender—has brought his magical mixology toys north. Using his Snapchiller (literally one of just six such devices in the world), he can cool a classic gin martini to -2 degrees Fahrenheit—so cold it’s viscous, and honestly mind-blowing. A centrifuge is the key to his bottled Bourbon Smash, which is bright, lemony, and perfect for a summer night. But we suggest you ask Maul and his staff to mix you up something specific to your tastes; they thrive on a challenge.
