Those who have stepped through the phone booth at Crif Dogs into PDT know all about the bowler-hatted bear looming over the bar. That’s Paddington. “David Slape, the drink’s creator, was the first bartender I hired to work at PDT,” says owner Jim Meehan. “The Paddington is a Hemingway Daiquiri variation of sorts made with orange marmalade, the fictional Paddington Bear’s treat of choice.” It’s appeared on nearly every PDT menu since its inception.
