Ted Gallagher’s love for fermented and distilled beverages began during his time stocking shelves and delivering wine at Marty’s Liquors in Allston, Massachusetts. It was a long journey from stocking to training for the position of bar manager at Craigie, where he’s proud to be a part of a team that emphasizes hospitality, service, the highest quality product, and having fun doing what they do. The “Never Setter” is a cocktail choice from Craigie’s extensive list that mingles sweet, sour, and peppery flavors in a refreshing libation.

Dehydrated orange wheel presoaked in Peychaud’s Bitters until it has taken on the red color for garnish
