New York City's Upper East Side isn't exactly rife with expert cocktail bars, which is why Seamstress was an especially welcome addition when the bar and restaurant debuted just before Valentines's Day. Here, former Dead Rabbit bartender Pam Wiznitzer tailors drinks around the theme of Americana, with a mix of classics and house creations. Below, she shares the recipe for No Say, a tropical, mezcal-spiked refresher.
