Phil Collins

Jackson Cannon, The Hawthorne | Boston

From Boston’s The Hawthorne comes Jackson Cannon’s cucumber vodka-and-Chartreuse highball, the Phil Collins, which mixes music with wordplay. Developed in jest, the drink has become so popular that the bar now hosts a party each year commemorating the Genesis singer’s birthday.
