Nantucket is loaded with fantastic watering holes, but some are worth visiting a little more than others. Take Slip 14, for example. Located right on Nantucket Harbor, the fresh-from-the-boat seafood and creative cocktail list make this waterview eatery a must for locals and tourists alike. We checked in with their fab and Imbibe Magazine cover-ready mixologist Teddy Nixon to find out what Slip 14 cocktail needs to be in everyone’s hands this summer. Here’s what he had to say:

“I find inspiration for my cocktails in pretty unusual places, like Theo Von, who happens to be one of my favorite comedians. When first crafting this drink, I knew something was missing. That missing link ended up being pear brandy, which is perfect because Theo has a hilarious bit about pears. So, given the connection, I thought it was only fitting to name the drink after him. I hope you’ll try making it at home or stop into Slip 14, and we’ll make one just for you!”
